1. ## How do I reach this answer? LOGs!

"Find the value of the following."

loga(1/a^2)
loga(a^(-2))
(-2)loga a

Note: the 'a' after the 'log' is the base.

The answer is a^4, I just don't know how to get it.

2. Hello, Jeavus!

Find the value of the following: . $\log_a\left(\frac{1}{a^2}\right)$

$\log_a\left(\frac{1}{a^2}\right) \;=\;\log_a\left(a^{-2}\right) \:=\:
-2\cdot\log_a(a)$
You're expected to know that: . $\log_a(a)\:=\:1$

Then the answer is: . $(-2)(1) \;=\;\boxed{-2}$

The answer is: $a^4$ . . . . no, it isn't
Did you copy the problem incorrectly?

3. Hmm, I didn't copy it incorrectly. Its what it says in the back of the package.

Its probably just wrong though.
