[tex]\log(x)[/tex] gives .
Seriously this is the exact way it is asked :
Solve the following equation for x.
logx + log2x = log50
there are no brackets or bases or anything else this is the way it has been asked, i understand what you are saying it is a function and has rules etc. but this is the way it has been asked.
