    Evaluate in terms of p \[\log_{c} b\] if ... \[\log_{b}a =p \] and c=a^2

    right , now use the property that \(\log x^y=y \log x\) so what will be \(\log_b c^{1/2} = ? \)

    right, that is p, so what is (log_b (c)) = ?

    thats correct. then use the property that \(\huge \log_xy=\frac{\log y}{\log x} = \frac{1}{\log_yx}\)

    (log_b (c)) = 2p so whats (log_c (b)) = ?

    yes, 1/(2p) is correct. its one of the very useful properties of log. u want a list of all the log properties ?
