how do you find x in 7-=log(x/10^-12)

  • Precalc - ,

    I will assume that -= is a typo and should be just =

    7 = log(x/10^-12)
    7 = logx - log 10^-12
    7 = logx - (-12)
    7-12= logx
    -5 = logx
    x = 10^-5

  • Precalc - ,

    the thing is its / instead of - so I thought that I multiply each side by 10^-12 but im not sure

  • Precalc - ,

    you cannot multiply by 10^12 because that is inside the log.

    suppose you had 2 = √(x/4)
    You can't multiply by 4, giving
    8 = √x
    because that would be trying to slide a value through the "walls" of the function calculation
