Express x in terms of a,b and c. log x = 1/2 (log a + log b - log c) Please solve and explain how to do this type of problem, thank you!

**calculus**

Use a linear approximation of f(x)=log(x) at x=1 to approximate log(3/4). Express your answer as an exact fraction; remember that log denotes the natural log.

log base b 64 - log base b 16 = log base 4 16 solve for the variable.. i got to the part as far as: (log 4/log b) = 2 now i m stuck at how i can isolate the b. plz help!

**precalc**

If g(x = log subscript 7 x then what is the value of g(1/49)? I believe it's 1/2 but I'm not sure. no recall that log 1/49 (base7) = log 1 - log 49 = 0 - 2 =-2

**math -- log and exp. functions**

1. evaluate log(base2)[(1/32) X 4^-9] 2. simplify: log x^2 y - (1/2)logx + 3 log y

**Algebra 2**

How would I solve the equation: log(base2)4 - log(base2)(x+3) = log(base2)8 ? i think i have to start by doing 4/(x+3)=8

**pre-calculus**

What is the base of the function F(x) = b to the power of x if the graph has points of (1/3, 2)and another off the subject one if g(x)= log 7 x what is g(1/49)? If F(x) = 2 when x = 1/3, and if the fucntio is of the form F(x) = b^x, then 2 = b^(1/3) Cube both sides of the ...

**Math**

prove: 1/log(base36)a = 2/log(base6)a i made a common base and then multiplied both sides with log(base6)a to get 2=log(base6)a/log(base6^2)a but this is as far as i can figure.

**Logarithms**

Hi, Can anyone tell me if the following are correct please:- If x = 10y (where x > 0), then log10 x = y if a and b are positive numbers, then, 2 log 10 a / b = 2log 10 a - 2 log 10 b and lastly if a and b are positive numbers, then, log 10 ( a+b ) = 10 log 10 a + log 10 b ...

write as a single logarithm: ln(x/x-1)+ ln(x+1/x)- ln(x^2-1) please show me the steps. thanx Michelle, I hope you know the three main rules of logs. 1. log (AB) = log A + log B 2. log (A/B) = log A - log B 3 log A^n - n log A Using these rules and guessing at your order of ...
