A. x = 8/5 B. x = -8/5 C. x = 0, 8/5 D. There are no solutions.
test each answer choice so plug in x = 8/5, what do you get?
how do i plug it in?? in format via calc?
replace x with 8/5
and use a calculator
okay so for x=8/5 i got .76339... is that right?
on the left side?
noo i did this.. log(3)8/5... idk i feel like thats wrong tho :(
thats wrong isn't it??!! :O
yeah it looks odd
okay so how should i put it in my calc?
log(5*8/5) + log( 8/5 - 1) for the left side
=6812412374 is that right?
whoa...way too big
oh you meant 0.6812412373 right?
yeah sorry my bad!!
weird i thought i pressed the "." lol
do the same for the right side
log( 3 * 8/5 ) = ???
ohhh okay =same as above :)
so 8/5 is a solution is -8/5 a solution??
so my answer is automatically A. x=8/5 ??
no it might be 0 or -8/5
haven't ruled them out yet
idk lemme check :) left side umm it won't even let me enter it.. it says error..
that's because the domain of log(x) is x > 0 so x = 0 and x = -8/5 aren't even defined
kk so my answer is just x=8/5 then?? A. x=8/5 is my answer right?
awesome! :) Thanks!
