log_3(2x  1) = 2, Find x.
Here's what I've done:
log_3(2x) * log_3(1) = 2
log2x/log3 * log1/log3 = 2
trial and error...
log2 (2*1.4)/log3 * 0 = 2.03...
x = 1.4
I think I did it wrong because anything that multiplies with 0 gives you 0...

Solve the equation. 2log3 y = log3 4+ log3 (y+8) Here's what ive got take out the logs and say y^2= 4+ y +8 which simplifies to (y^2)y=12 how do i simplfy the y?

Solve the logarithmic equation. Express your solutions in exact form only. Please show all of your work. log3(x+2) + log3(x+8) – 2 = log3(x+3)

Hi i need to find x in 9^(2x6)=6^(8x5) So what i did was: 3^(4x12)=6^(8x5) log3(3)^(4x12)=log3(6)^(8x5) 4x12=(8x5)log3(6) now i'm stuck. and i actually feel that the whole thing is wrong. help, pls
