Use change of base to rewrite the expression, log5 16

When I solved this, I got log10 16 / log10 5

But when checking it on mathway I got log 16 / log 5

Could someone explain this?

    it's a semantics thing ... if no base is indicated , 10 is assumed

  2. Steve

    the base does not matter. logb16/logb5 = log516

    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)?
