problem #1
problem #2
im doing these two different ways, i kept getting two different answers, can someone please do these the right way so i can understand the procedure, thank you.
PS: when i type problem 1 in my cal i get the answer 1. but when i do it on paper i get the answer 4, and 1 & 4 are both an answer selection so i dont know which one it is. also, the directions says not to use a calculator though.
the directions say:
use the properties of logarithms to find the exact value of the expression. do not use a calculator.
i can do it on my calulator, i do log(24) / log(4) = 2.29
and log(6) / log(4) = 1.29
i get the answer 1 which is answer A but i dont believe that this is the right answer because in the instructions it says dont use a calculator. can you please do the problem in steps, i find it easier for me to understand it better if i see someone do it. thanks again
yeah thats the answer i got from doing it on my cal, for some reason i thought doing it on paper would give me a different answer.
how do i put #3 in a calculator? with #2 i just type in log(24)/log(4) / log(6)/log(4) that equaled 1 for the answer.
but i dont know how to type in #3 can you help me with that? last qustion i promise
Your directions say: Don't use a calculator, so first of all
Send your calculator to Antarctica.
You should first of all solve your questions in a paper Here is Logarithm Tutorial.
