Solve the equation, log4 ^(m+ 2) - log4^ (m- 5) = log4^ 8

Is there a solution to this at all?

yes, i was thinking that as well. don't you just hate those typos?

i made the statement that i assumed 4 was not the base, but BlueStar said nothing about it, unless he/she doesn't know what that means ...or it really wasn't the base, let's give BlueStar the benefit of the doubt
