  1. (1/2) logb(x-2) - logby + 3logbz = log6(x-2)^(1/2)

    logb [ (x-2)^(1/2) z/y] = log6(x-2)^(1/2)

    logb ( (z/y)√(x-2) ) = log6 √(x-2)

    are you sure the right side was not supposed to be
    logb ?

  2. oops, didn't notice the 3 coefficient until I checked the display of this post.

    should have been: z^3 in the last two lines.

    logb (x^3/y)logb(x-2) = log6 √(x-2)
