solve the equation
log (4x)= log5 + log(x4)

Log(4x) log(x 4) = log5
4x/x4 = 5
4x = 5(x4)
4x =5x 20
4x 5x 5x 5x 20
1x = 20
x = 20

here is the question: log5(x4)= log7x solve for x. These are just base 10 logs. log100 = 2 This equation has the same format as log 40 = log (2x20) Since both sides have log base 10, you divide by log base 10 and end up with 5(x4) …
