1. 7.2=36/5
36=6*6

log(a+b=log(a)+log(b)

log(36)=log(6)+log(6)=2*log(6)

log(a/b)=log(a)-log(b)

log(36/5)=2*log(6)-log(5)

log(6)=m log(5)=n

log(36/5)=log(7.2)=2m-n

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.

Integrate x dx/(1-x). I have proceeded thus- Int xdx/(1-x)=int -(x-1+1)/(x-1) =-Int[1+ 1/(x-1)]dx =-Int dx-Int dx/(x-1) =-x-log(x-1). On differentiating, we get original expression- d/dx[-x-log(x-1)]=-1-1/(x-1)=-x/(x-1)=x/(1-x).
