  1. I will assume you want this simplified
    Using basic log rules:
    Log(x-2)+log2=2logy
    log( (x-2)(2) ) = log (y^2)
    anti-log it
    2(x-2) = y^2

    y^2 = 2x - 4 or x = (y^2 + 4)/2 or ....

    The problem I have to solve is log with base 2 ^6 multiply by log base 6 ^ 8. I use the change of base formula and got log6/log2 * log8/log6 Which become log6/log2 * log2()^3/ log 6 I'm stuck here thanks.

    1.Use the laws of logarithms to express log2 (6) – log2 (3) + 2log2 (8)^1/2 as a single logarithm; then evaluate. 2. For logy = log(0.5x – 3) + log2, express y as a function of x.

    I don't understand how log2 √(1/2) turned into log2 2^(-1/2). Quote: You will have to know the 3 prime properties of logs 1. logk (AB) = logk A + logk B 2. logk(A/B) = logk A - logk B 3. logk (A^n) = n logk A where k is any
