    if you look at all your answers...one sticks out of them. perhaps this will help \[log(a+b)=log(a)+log(b)\] \[log(-a+b)=log(b-a)=\frac{log(b)}{log(a)}\]

    The only solutions to the system are: \[ \log(a+b)=\log(a)+\log(b)\implies\\ b=\frac{a}{a-1}, a\ne0, a-1\ne0 \]

    @Outkast3r09 \( \log(a+b)=\log(a)+\log(b) \) Is *not* true for all cases.

    I understand the equations but I still can't find the right answers.

    The first and last are the only two.

    mmm...that is not right either according to my math hw program. This problem is such a hassle.

    Oh, I forgot to say that \(x>0\). The last two and the first are counter-examples to these.

    No, wait, never mind, it's only the first and the last.

    Because that restriction doesn't hold. I don't really know... you can check them all by hand, I guess, but I'm pretty sure it's only the first and last.

    Thank you! It was the first and the last two that worked.

    Haha, yeah, I know why, now: the last one is imaginary, it *holds* but not in the real numbers.
