## anonymous one year ago how can properties of logarithms be applied to simplify or solve equations??????

1. anonymous

take an exponential equation. i.e x equals something to the power of x. We can use a logarithm to solve this. i.e. to find that x

They can be used to combine multiple log expressions into one. For example $\log (x+3)-\log(x+5)=10$ $\log \frac{ x+3 }{ x-5 }=10$ Then you can convert that to an exponential equation and solve fairly easily

Thank you so much! How do I convert it to exponential??
