    By definition, blogbN = N

    #1. 64+100 = 164
    #2. 1 = log2, so you have
    log2+log(x^3) = log(2x^3)
    #3. 1/2 (3logx + logy + 6logz)
    #4. supressing the "base 2" for readability, we have

    logx - log6 = log5+2log3
    log(x/6) = log(5*3^2)
    x/6 = 45
    x = 270
    Actually, since all the logs are the same base, the base doesn't really matter.

    #5. Since 9=3^2 and 81=3^4, you have

    3^(2x) = 3^2 * 3^4x
    3^2x = 3^(2+4x)
    2x = 2+4x
    x = -1
    Check: 3^-2 = 1/9
    9(81^-1) = 9/81 = 1/9

    #6.
    3^(2x) = 7^(3x-1)
    2x log3 = (3x-1) log7
    2x/(3x-1) = log7/log3
    x = 0.53

    #7.
    log (x+3)(x-2) = log (3x+2)
    (x+3)(x-2) = (3x+2)
    x = -2 or 4

    Thanks a lot!

    #7. Actually, x = -2 needs to be discarded, since log(x-2) is not defined there.

    here is the question: log5(x-4)= 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(x-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)?
