Hello y'all, I hope y'all are having an excellent weekend.

Can you help with this logarithm nproblem?

Condense the expression to the logarithm of a single quantity

3lnx- (ln(x+3) + ln(x-3)

sorry for the late reply! i still need help, I don't have much longer! I'll rewrite the problem, there was a MISTAKE on my end in the OP, i'm not sure if you have it right. Thank you in advance to anyone who can briefly go over the steps.

**2**lnx - {ln(x+**2**) + ln(x-**2**)} - Apr 22nd 2013, 04:50 PMProve ItRe: Ugh... Logarithms =/
$\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} 2\ln{(x)} - \left[ \ln{(x + 2)} + \ln{(x - 2)} \right] &= \ln{ \left( x^2 \right) } - \ln{\left[ (x+2)(x-2) \right]} \\ &= \ln{\left[ \frac{x^2}{(x+2)(x-2)} \right] } \end{align*}$
