Algebra 1

Explain the differences between solving these two equations:
•log3(x - 1) = 4
AND log3(x - 1) = log34

I think it has to deal with the formulas?

  1. by definition
    log3(x - 1) = 4
    is 3^4 = x-1
    x= 82

    for the second, (I will assume you meant
    log3(x - 1) = log34 )

    anti-log it
    x-1 = 4
    x = 5
