kk so that means? haha :P

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?

no i said that as a disclaimer to what I was about to write

oh okay haha :P so do i simplify that more? or is that the most simplified it can get?

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
or do i do substitution or sometihng?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you can pull the exponents down

using one of the rules given on that purplemath site

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh no!! i lost the link :(

can u pls resend it to me? :)

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so which one do i use?? I'm confused :(
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you use the rule that log(x^y) = y*log(x)

so I'm trying to see what to put in here, but I'm stuck... idk :(

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ohhh i see what u did now! but how do i do proper substitutions??

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

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so i get log(5)+log(2)log(6) ??

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you mixed up C and D though and you're missing your coefficients

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay then, idk then :( iheartfood=a confused person atm :/
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
look at the givens again
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what are the givens?? from the original question?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah, log(A) = ..., log(C) = ..., etc
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so i get this? log(5)+log(7)log(2) ??
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok, now add on the coefficients
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what coefficients?? like the results when i enter it in the calc??

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh wait, idk why i said that was right, I'm misreading lol

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) ) = ???

log(A) = 5 NOT log(5)

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
wiat so what do i have now then?? I'm confused now lol
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no sry, but i put up the right way to do it
 one year ago

iheartfoodBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so i have this so far?dw:1353219981709:dw??just making sure... idk if thats how I'm supposed to draw it?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that looks off

can u pls draw it for me?? idk how to comprehend that well when its like in font/text format :/

\[\Large \log_{b}\left(\frac{A^5C^2}{D^6}\right) = \log_{b}\left(A^5C^2\right)  \log_{b}\left(D^6\right)\] \[\Large \log_{b}\left(\frac{A^5C^2}{D^6}\right) = \log_{b}\left(A^5\right) + \log_{b}\left(C^2\right)  \log_{b}\left(D^6\right)\] \[\Large \log_{b}\left(\frac{A^5C^2}{D^6}\right) = 5\log_{b}\left(A\right) + 2\log_{b}\left(C\right)  6\log_{b}\left(D\right)\] \[\Large \log_{b}\left(\frac{A^5C^2}{D^6}\right) = 5(5) + 2(7)  6(2)\] \[\Large \log_{b}\left(\frac{A^5C^2}{D^6}\right) = ???\]
