#2**+5 **

This is base 8

$${\mathtt{4}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{log8}{\left({\sqrt{{\mathtt{2}}}}\right)} = {\mathtt{4}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{log}}_{{\mathtt{8}}}{\left({\mathtt{1.414\: \!213\: \!562\: \!373\: \!095}}\right)}$$

And is this what you mean?

Best Answer

If it is base 8 it should have been wrtitten like this

4log_8(sqrt2)

or

4 times the log of sqrt2 base 8

or

$$\\Let\\\\

x=4log_8\sqrt{2}\\\\

x=log_8\sqrt{2}^4\\\\

x=log_8 2^2\\\\

x=log_8 4\\\\

4=8^x\\\\

2^2=2^{3x}\\\\

2=3x\\\\

x=\frac{2}{3}\\\\

4log_8\sqrt{2}=\frac{2}{3}$$
