Condense the logorithmic expression as much as possible:

3 ln x -(1/3) ln y

The answer is ln x^3 / 3(radical)y

Can a process be provided as to how one gets to the answer? I think I see what is happening, but could use clarification.

ln M/N =ln M-N

ln M^x = xlnM

apply these rules

3lnx -1/3 lny = ln x^3/y^1/3 - Dec 4th 2012, 12:50 PMtopsquarkRe: Condense the logorithmic expression
