1. One of the main rules of logs is this one:
log (AB) = log A + log B , as long as the base is the same in all log expressions.
We have that case here, everything is in terms of base b

so logb (3b) = logb</sub 3 + logb</sub b
= 3.417 + 1 , since logb</sub b = 1
= 4.417

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).
