Laws of logarithms

evualuat using change of base rule

log(√8)16

^the square root 8 is supposed to be subscript.

the answer i got was 8/3, not sure if that is right

  • Pre Calculus 12 -

    You are correct

    This can be done without a calculator
    let log √816 = x

    (√8)^x = 16
    ( (2^3)^(1/2)^x = 2^4

    3(1/2)x = 4
    3x = 8
    x = 8/3
