Can someone walk me throught this problem as an exeample. I do not understad this so far. The problem is:

 

Condense each expression into a single logarithim:

3*log102 + log10(x-4)

I woukd greatly apprcieate it if someone can help me out.

{We can ignore the subscript 10.......and write }

 

3*log2 + log(x-4)          {  a log b   =   log b ^a  }

 

log 2^3  + log (x - 4)       ( log a + log b  =   log (a * b)   }

 

log 8 + log (x - 4)   

 

  log ( 8 * (x - 4) )  =

 

log ( 8x - 32 )

I got one more question:

 

How do I solve exponetial equations?

For example:

 

64x+7=45x-3

The trick is to try to get the bases the same

 

Note  64  =  4^3

 

So   we have

 

(4^3)^(x + 7)  =  (4)^(5x - 3)

 

4^(3x + 21)  = (4)^(5x - 3)       we  have the bases alike.....solve for the exponents

 

3x + 21  = 5x  - 3    

 

24  =  2x

 

x  = 12
