Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We have equivalent formulas. Those are \(log_a b= c\iff a^c =b\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like \(log_2 8 = 3 \iff 2^3 =8\) Same as your problem, you can convert from log to exponent and solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3How did you end up with \(\log_{x}6 = \dfrac{1}{2}\)? Like what Loser66 said, just convert it into exponential form; \[\log_x625 = 4\quad\Longleftrightarrow\quad x^4=625\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wrote in exponential form then I made the power of the variable 1. maintain the balance of the equation so raised the other side to the power (2) also rewrite with positive exponent or simple form x = 1/36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but why are we square rooting each side

triciaal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to make the power = 1 so that the value is just the variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@MTALHAHASSAN2 do you agree with me that if \( 2^2 =4\) then \((2^2)^2 =4^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@triciaal we SOLVE the problem, that means we find x such that \(log_x 6=1/2\)

Loser66

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in this case, we have x = 1/36, let check \(log_{1/36} 6 = 1/2?\)
