    log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5C^2) - log(D^6) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5) + log(C^2) - log(D^6) What's next?

    you use the rule that log(x^y) = y*log(x)

    log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5C^2) - log(D^6) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5) + log(C^2) - log(D^6) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = 5*log(A) + 2*log(C) - 6*log(D) Then do the proper substitutions

    log(A) = 5, so replace log(A) with 5 do the same with the other logs

    you mixed up C and D though and you're missing your coefficients

    log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5C^2) - log(D^6) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = log(A^5) + log(C^2) - log(D^6) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = 5*log(A) + 2*log(C) - 6*log(D) log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = 5*5 + 2*7 - 6*2 log( (A^5C^2)/(D^6) ) = ???
