1)solve the equation p=log(squareroot8)/log(2)

2)hence solve the equation log(31+log(16)/log(x))/log(9)=log(squareroot8/log(2)

asked by meredith
  1. p=log(squareroot8)/log(2)
    = log 8^(1/2) / log2
    = (1/2)log 2^3 / log2
    = (3/2) log2/log2
    p = 3/2

    log(31+log(16)/log(x))/log(9)=log(squareroot8/log(2)

    I see "mismatched brackets" on the right side.
    Where does p = 3/2 enter the picture?

    Prove that log a, log ar, log ar^2 is an a.p. Is the following below correct? Log ar^2 - Log ar= Log ar - Log a hence applying laws of logarithm Log(ar^2/ar) = log(ar/a) Log and log cancels out and then cross-multiply hence a^2r^2
