maths pls help

1. Solve the following simultaneous equations:
log2 xy = 7
log2 (x^2/y) = 5
2. If log y x =a and log z x=b where x is not equal to 1, express the following in terms of a and b:
logy (yz)
Solve the following simultaneous equations:
y = 2 log3 x
y+1 = log3 9x
Thanks! I tried to work them out but I couldn't!

Try this on the first set:
log (xy)= logx + logy
log (x^2y)= 2logx + log2
Those ought to help.
Try that also on the second.
On the third,
y+1= log3 9x = log33^2 x= 2 + log3 x
y1= log3 x
but y= 2log3 x then solve. 
I still cannot work them out!!

What problems are you having? Where are you getting stuck?

I don't know. I simply cannot agree with the answers and I have tried to work them out many times

I am having problems in mmeasuring.

Solve: 2^(5x6) = 7 My work: log^(5x6) = log7 5x  6(log2) = log7 5x = log7 + 6(log2) x = (log7 + log2^6) / 5 And textbook answer: (log7) / (log2) What did I do wrong?

1.Use the laws of logarithms to express log2 (6) â€“ log2 (3) + 2log2 (8)^1/2 as a single logarithm; then evaluate. 2. For logy = log(0.5x â€“ 3) + log2, express y as a function of x.

The problem I have to solve is log with base 2 ^6 multiply by log base 6 ^ 8. I use the change of base formula and got log6/log2 * log8/log6 Which become log6/log2 * log2()^3/ log 6 I'm stuck here thanks.
