**Algebra-Please check**

When you have time,Could someone please check this morning the two problems I listed in the first post along with this one The function f(x) = logx is a logarthmic function-I think this is false because it should be written as log(then a number)x, correct Thank you very much

**Algebra**

I have two short questions which I think I know the answer-could you please check? If I write log(b)x - 2log(b)y as a single logarithm it would be log(b) x/y^2, correct? If not please help and Is the function f(x) = 1/x a exponential function -I think it would be because it ...

**Algebra-Reiny please explain this**

Hi Reiny, I posted this problem earlier and you responded but I don't get the reasoning- The problem was -2log8(x+1) = -8 you said multiply by -2 and then you put log8(x+1)=4(wasn't that dividing by -2) log8(x+1)^2 = 8 (how did you get to the power of 2 and =4 became =...

Please give me some direction for the above problem Thank you

*December 13, 2010*

**Algebra**

How do I start to solve -2log8(x+1) = -8? I think -2log8(x+1) is log8^(x+1)to the 2nd but then what do I do because then I think I should do log-8/log8 = x+1)^2 but that doesn't work at all Thank you for any help you can give
