Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01) the 1/3 would just be the exponent of log(729) so log(729)^1/3 and then we use log rule log(ab)= log(a)+log(b) to get log(9)(729)^(1/3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i solve that? @jbovey i got In9/in10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no thats the answer for #1. Since it says just write as single log you wouldn't have to solve any further

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it just wants you to use the log rules and combine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im kind of confused by the way you wrote it. Can u draw the equation out so I can see?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know you'll have to use log rule 3 which is log(a)log(b)= log(a)/(b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 2s are bases. She means \(\log_{2} 5  \frac{1}{2} \log_{2} 169\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so wouldnt that make 5 and 169 the exponents? @geoffb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You would just need to maintain base 2. It's nice because both logs use base 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just a quick point on your first question... \[\frac{1}{3}\log(729) = \log(\sqrt[3]{729}) = \log(9)\] so then \[\log(9) + \frac{1}{3}\log(729) = \log(9) + \log(9) = \log(9 \times 9) = \log(81).. or... 2\log(9)\] just a suggestion... when compared to \[\log(\sqrt[3]{6561})\] not quite the same things...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, like you said, you could start by moving the 1/2 up as an exponent. $$\large \log_{2} 5  \frac{1}{2} \log_{2} 169 = \log_{2} 5  \log_{2} 169^{\frac{1}{2}} = \log_{2} (\frac{5}{13})$$
