  1. so you want:
    y = log3 (127)
    or
    3^y = 1/27 , by definition of logs
    3^y = 3^-3

    y = -3

    f(1/27) = -3

    (I have two questions) 1. Solve for x without a calculator: log3(x^2)=2log3(4)-4log3(5) This is what I have so far: 2log3(x)=log3(4^2)-log3(5^4) 2log3(x)=log3(16/625) ...and now I'm stuck. 2. Simplify: 2log4(9)-2log3

    Find the inverse of each relation: y = (0.5)^(x+2) and y = 3log base 2 (x-3) + 2 For the first one I got y=log base 0.5 (x+2)...but the answer in the back of the textbook says that it is not x+2, but x-2. Can someone tell me why

    Why is (log3 400)/2 equivalent to log3 20? Can you show me how you can prove that step by step, without a calculator? Thank you so much!

    Use a calculator to evaluate the trigonometric function. Round to four decimal places. Make sure that your calculator is in the correct angle mode. 1) csc 2pi/5 1.3213? 2) sec 0.7 1.3075?

    Solve the logarithmic equation. Express your solutions in exact form only. Please show all of your work. log3(x+2) + log3(x+8) – 2 = log3(x+3)
