Solve the logorithmic equation log(8) x + log(8) (x-63) = 2 The correct answer is listed as 64. I'm trying to learn and understand the correct way of coming down to that answer with out using a calculator. Thanks.

If I told you that $\displaystyle \log_8(x) + \log_8(x - 63) = \log_8(x(x - 63))$ Can you finish from there? -Dan
yes, i factored, then got to 64.
