One method is that it looks like a perfect square since the first and last terms are perfect squares. (2x+3)^2 However, if you do the check you will get 12x for the middle term and not 16x. So.. that method doesn't work. another method would be the guess method (2x )(2x ) ...

Here you need to use the law of logs. Anything that is added will be multiplied, anything that is subtracted will be divided, anything that is multiplied will be taken to a power. log(base5) (8/2)(15/2)^3 divided by 81/8 Simplify this first and then continue.
