    Log raised to a power

    (log3 Y)^2

    Is there another way of writing a log raised to a power?

    not used that much any more ...

     <br />
\log_3^2{y}<br />

    preferable the way you wrote it ...

     <br />
(\log_3{y})^2<br />

    Actually I thought there might be an equation to rewrite it as something else.

    there is no simple way to simplify this expression...

    perhaps you should write the actual question if you're having trouble...

    I solved my question by factorising a quadratic equation using a substitute variable for the log.

    then if the question is simply if there is a way to simplify that expression,

    the answer is no, not with simple algebra
