Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay. remember the log rule: \(\large \log_x b=a \implies x^a=b\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\log_{(2x6)}256 = 4 \implies (2x6)^4 = 256\] Do you see how the formula works?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but how do I change that to the answer? (The answer is x = 5, I took the test, I just wanna know how to do it)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3to get rid of the 4rth power, you take the 4rth root from both sides o the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[(2x6)^4=256\]\[\sqrt[4]{(2x6)^4} = \sqrt[4]{256}\]\[2x6=4\]\[2x=10\]\[x=5\]
