I am assuming it's , not . In plain text, one could write log(p) / sqrt(q). Have you tried applying different logarithm identities?

Have you seen examples of solutions of such equations? - Dec 12th 2011, 12:38 PMMagisterPS3Re: Need help with logs
I have seen examples of both but im not sure how to put in terms of a letter...

For the first problem, try applying some of the four identities in the link from post #3. For the second problem, multiply both sides by -1, apply to both sides and use the fact that .
