    \log_2 3+\log_3 4+\log_4 5+\log_5 6+\log_6 7+\log_7 8 How to find the value for this?

    Find the range for x?

    Arrow Re: Log

    First One,

    \log_2 3+\log_3 4+\log_4 5+\log_5 6+\log_6 7+\log_7 8

    \log_2 3+\frac{2}{\log_2 3}+\frac{1}{\log_5 4}+\log_5 6+\frac{1}{\log_7 6}+\log_7 8

    And then What Can i Do?


    Second One,
    3x+4<x^2-6x<9-2x

    Case 1,
    3x+4<x^2 -6
    0<x^2-3x-10
    0<(x-5)(x+2)
    In this case i get x>5 Or x<-2

    Case 2,
    x^2-6x<9-2x
    x^2-4x-9<0
    x=\frac{4 \pm \sqrt{16+36}}{2}
    then i get answers in roots so how can i find the range of x?

    I see no simple way to do the first one.

    It is equivalent to \sum\limits_{k = 2}^7 {\frac{{\ln (k + 1)}}{{\ln (k)}}} .

    Using a CAS I get 7.276.

    3x+4<x^2-6x<9-2x

    case (1) ...

    3x+4 < x^2-6x

    0 < x^2-9x-4

    x < \frac{9-\sqrt{97}}{2} \approx -0.4244...

    x > \frac{9+\sqrt{97}}{2} \approx 9.4244...

    case (2) ...

    x^2-6x < 9-2x

    x^2-4x-9 < 0

    2-\sqrt{13} < x < 2+\sqrt{13}

    -1.60555... < x < 5.60555...

    intersect the two solution sets
