Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooo, so logs are like exponents, when you multiply exponents, what do you do with them actually?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's the answer to this question? x^2(x^2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer in my sheet says x cant equal 3 and x = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm, I don't think you can get an numerical answer to this question, because it doesn't have an equal sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[\log_2(x+2)+\log_2(x1)=2?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooo, that makes more sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5that first step you have there looks great little confused on your third line you have you should do 2^ on both sides for your second line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the other one should be log base 2 (2) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[2^{\log_2((x1)(x+2))}=2^2\] see we do 2^ on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5this gives us: \[(x1)(x+2)=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5you will need to expand and get everything on one side like you are going to want 0 on that right hand side there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5or what I'm asking you to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. why 2 on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[a^{\log_a(y)}=y \\ \text{ for } y>0 \text{ and } a \in (0,1) \cup (1,\infty)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[\text{ that is I knew } 2^{\log_2((x+2)(x1))}=(x+2)(x1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5for example if we had: \[\log_{4}((x+2)(x1))=2 \\ \text{ I would do 4^ on both sides } \\ 4^{(\log_4(x+2)(x1))}=4^2 \\ \text{ which the whole point in doing the 4^ } \\ \text{ is written below } \\ (x+2)(x1)=4^2 \\ \text{ we get \to write in its equivalent exponent form } \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5do you understand that the following two are inverses: \[y=a^x \text{ and } y=\log_a(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[f(x)=a^x \text{ and } f^{1}(x)=\log_a(x) \text{ are inverses iff } \\ f(f^{1}(x))=x \text{ and } f^{1}(f(x))=x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5that is: \[a^{\log_a(x)}=x \text{ and } \log_a(a^x)=x\] there are some domain restrictions but yeah

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[\text{ so we had } \log_2(stuff)=2 \\ \text{ and I did } \color{red}{2}^{\log_\color{green}{2}(stuff)}=\color{red}{2}^2 \\ stuff=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I did 2^ on both sides because of the green 2 there

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if the green would have been 5 I would have did 5^ on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if that doesn't make sense to you I'm sure you have written log equations in their equivalent exponential form right?

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\[\log_a(y)=x \implies a^{x}=y \\ \log_2([(x1)(x+2)]=2 \implies 2^{2}=(x1)(x+2)\]
