# Precalculus

I'm studying for my precalc exam and have completed 42 practice problems. I have 3 I need to answer that I can't. Please help. What is the base of the function G(x) = log subscript b x if it's graph has points (16,4)? Using the properties of logarithms how do I rewrite log subscript 5 2/3 + log subscript 5 9/10? What is the value of log subscript 2 (8 1/2 )? Thank you so much my brain is about to explode with the amount of math I've done in the past two days.

Please type your questions on separate lines. We would prefer one question per post.

<<What is the base of the function
G(x) = log subscript b x
if it's graph has points (16,4)?>>
What number to the 16th power is 4? The answer is 1.09051. That is the base b of the G(x) log function in this case.

<<Using the properties of logarithms how do I rewrite log subscript 5 2/3 + log subscript 5 9/10?>>
log(sub5) 2/3 + log(sub5) 9/10?>>
= log(sub5) [(2/3)*(9/10)]
= log(sub5) 3/5

<<What is the value of
log(sub2) (8 1/2 )?
2^x = 8.5
x log 2 = log 8.5 (use any base)
x = 3.087

I can't remember how to create a system of equations using one cooridnate plain point can anyone help me???
