Solve the equation. (the 6s are supposed to be sub-scripted, but I can't type subscripts)

Problem: log6 7 - log6 x = 4
a. 7/24
b. 7/1296
c. 7/4
d. 1296/7

• Math -

You will have to know the basic rules of logs
log(A/B) = logA - logB comes into play here
log6 7 - log6 x = 4
log6 (7/x) = 4

by definition of logs
6^4 = 7/x
1296 = 7/x
x = 7/1296
