1. 1/x = logn(a)
1/y = logn(c)

(x-y)/(x+y) = (1/y - 1/x)/(1/y + 1/x)
= logn(c/a)/logn(c*a)

logb(c)-logb(a) = logb(c/a)
logb(c)+logb(a) = logb(c*a)

The two ratios are equal.

True or False and please explain so that I can understand. Thank you. 1. (1,0) is always a point on the graphy of y = logb (x). 2. If x=b^2y for b > 1, then y = 1/2 logb (x).
