ln(√(6m^4n^2)) write as a sum and/or difference of logarithms, with all variables to the first degree... I know the answer is 1/2ln(6) + 2ln(m) + ln(n) but I don't understand where 1/2 half comes from??

It's the square root.\[\ln(\sqrt{6m^4n^2})=\ln(6m^4n^2)^{\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{1}{2}\ln(6m^4n^2)=...\]

is the 1/2 used to get rid of the √ (square root)?

√a=a^(1/2), because:\[(\sqrt{a})^2=a\]and\[(a^{\frac{1}{2}})^2=a^{2 \cdot\frac{1}{2}}=a^1=a\] It is just another way of writing √a.
