loga(x-5)-loga(x+9)=loga(x-7)-loga(x+9)

all the a's are lower

please show work

asked by anonymous
  1. log [(x-5)/(x+9)]= log[(x-7)/(x+9) ]

    (x-5)(x+9) = (x-7)(x+9)

    x-5 = x- 7
    no solution

  2. x-5/x+9 is equal to x-7/x+9

    (x+9 )(x-5) is equal to (x-7)(x+9)
    x2-5x+9x -40 equals x2-9x-7x-63
    nw solve from there:)

    Can someone show how to this question. Loga(x+3) + Loga(x-3) = 3 I don't know if I'm typing this correctly the a is the base. So, I'm thinking, Loga((x+3)(x-3)) = 3 (x+3)(x-3) = 3^a x^2 - 9 = 3^a, x^2 = 3^a + 9 x = sqrt(3^a + 9)
