# Math Help - Laws of Logarithms

1. ## Laws of Logarithms

In order to simplify the function ln(e^e^x) would I use the law ln(a^x) = x? This would give me e^x

And for the function e^(ln(2x+1)) would I use the law e^ln(x) = x? This would give me 2x+1

Sorry if the notation is confusing, I hope it makes sense, and thanks in advance.

the law is not $\ln a^x = x$ it is $\log_a a^x = x$ ...( $\ln a^x = x \ln a$ ...which is a variation of another law)
now, $\ln \equiv \log_e$
so, $\ln e^{e^x} = e^x$ as you said.
