    Well what is it?...

    3 log 2 x + 1/2 log 2 y – 3 log 2 z = log 2 (x^3√y / z^3).

    Nothing is impossible.

    Okay, that's an impossible equation indeed. But it has multiple solutions.

    Exaggeration of course, ha

    So it is capable of being solved? I could call it true?

    Yes, it can be solved by using these identities:\[\log_a b + \log _a c = \log_a (bc)\]and\[\log_a b - \log_a c = \log_a (b/c)\]

    \[\log_2x^3+\log_2y^{1/2}-\log_2z^3=\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)\]

    Two more:\[a\log b = \log b^a\]and\[\log_a b = \log_a c \iff b = c\]

    I am very, very lazy and I am very, very serious about that. So I think @jiteshmeghwal9 will continue helping :-p

    It asks me if the equation is true, and if so then to explain the properties used. o.o

    \(log_2x^3+log_2(y^{1/2})=log_2(x^3\sqrt{y})\) now \(log_2(x^3\sqrt{y})-log_2z^3=log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)\)

    \[\log_2x^3+\log_2y^{1/2}-\log_2z^3=\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)\]since\[\log_2x^3+\log_2(y^{1/2})=\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y})\]\[\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y})-\log_2z^3=\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)\]so,\[\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)=\log_2(x^3\sqrt{y}/z^3)\]H.P.

    I am so confused. Thank you everyone for the help, I'll just do my best to take the identities you both listed and write something about it. Very much appreciated!

    By properties they mean the logarithmic properties :c I just asked my teacher. So the power property, the product property, and the quotient property? Would any of those fit?

    Power Property \[\log a^b=b \log a\] Product Property \[\log ab= \log a +\log b \] Quotient property \[\log \dfrac{a}{b}=\log a - \log b\]

    \(blog_ac=log_ac^b\) \(log_ab+log_ac=log_abc\) \(log_ab - log_ac=log_a\dfrac{b}{c}\)

    these are the only properties used in the question

    How do they show that the equation is true, though?
