**Reiny**, Monday, November 19, 2012 at 9:20pmI 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

**Rebekah**, Monday, November 19, 2012 at 10:11pmthe thing is its / instead of - so I thought that I multiply each side by 10^-12 but im not sure

**Steve**, Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 12:22amyou 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
