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

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?
