Log (base 4) 2 + log (base 16) 2

• Calculus -

since 16=4^2, log_4 = 2log_16
so, converting all to base 4 logs,

log4(2) + 1/2 log4(2)

Since 2 = √4, log4(2) = 1/2, and we have

1/2 + 1/2 (1/2) = 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4

or, looking at it another way,
2 = √4, so log4(2) = 1/2
2 = ∜16, so log16(2) = 1/4

1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4

Use the Laws of logarithms to rewrite the expression log(base 2)(11x(x-9)) in a form with no logarithm of a product, quotient or power. After rewriting we will have: log(base 2)A+log(base 2)x+log(base 2)f(x) What is A and what is f(x)?
