## Sgstudent 2 years ago Solve 3 log base 5 y - 1og base 25 y = 10

1. AravindG

well first try to use property of logarithm on first log term

2. Nikhil619

do u know how to start?

3. Sgstudent

no i didnt attend the lesson.

4. AravindG

ie. \[\large \log x^n=n \log x\]

5. Nikhil619

so u dont know any properties of logarithm?

6. Sgstudent

i copied down all the 5 formulas without knowing the explanation as i was absent from class.

7. AravindG

well by missing your class , there is no use tring to solve any problem unless u hav worked on theory part yourself

8. AravindG

i think it will be a waste of time for both you and us

9. Nikhil619

so u know that, \[\log_{n ^{m}} a =1/m \log_{n} a\]

10. Sgstudent

could you solve it for me as i try to figure out.

11. AravindG

I think a better idea would be trying to learn the basics first and then attempt the question

12. Sgstudent

I didnt miss the basic lesson.

13. AravindG

i just found a good document for you to read and understand http://www.shoreline.edu/math/Handouts/Properties%20of%20Logarithms.pdf

14. Nikhil619

@Sgstudent actuallly @AravindG is right...first understand the properties then u can solve the problem quite easily!

15. AravindG

make a good reading of that ,when you become confident about the basic properties let us know ! we will be happy to help you :)

16. Sgstudent

okay thnx

17. AravindG

infact if you do the basics thoroughly you can do this question in your head ! imagine that ! :)

18. Sgstudent

Still, could you at least help me in this question? What are the steps involved?

19. AravindG

we will once you make an effort to learn the basics

20. AravindG

you can run only after you learn to walk!

21. Sgstudent

I said i learnt the basics already but i am stuck with the question.

22. AravindG

why are you still after the question? it would only take half an hour to read through that document and familiarize with properties of logarithm .Please make an effort !

23. AravindG

infact that document contains practise problem+answers!!

24. Sgstudent

25. Sgstudent

It's okay if you dont believe me , peace out.

26. AravindG

did you do the practise problems ?
