Suppose that f(x) = log (base 4) x
1. If f(3) = 0.79 and f(5) = 1.16, then evaluate f(75)
2. If f(3) is 0.79 find log (base 8) 3
3. Show that f(x) + f(1/x) = 0
THANKS GUYS!
You're expecetd to apply the various log rules you've been taught.
1. Note that .

2. .... (1)
.... (2)
Substitute (2) into (1) and solve for x.
There are undoubtedly easier ways of doing this but they're my first thoughts.

given log base 4 3=.79 find log base 8 3. All parts answered Iadd a simplication for the latter calculation
log ( base 8) 8=1 log (base4 ) 8=3/2
therefore 3/2 is the factor to go from base 8 to base 4. going from base 4 to base 8 you multiply by 2/3
2/3log(base4)3=log (base8)3=2/3(,79)=.527
