Is this the reason? When you divide 18/3 =6 and the base is also 6 means if the base is 6 and the power is 6 then it= 1?
The problem is
Log6^18- Log 6^3.
When you have subtraction in a log the properties say divide. So I would assume I would divide 18/3 which is 6. But the answer to the problem is 1.
They both have a base of 6 so I know i don't have to change that. On my help cd that came with the text book says divide M/N which is what I have done.
How is the answer 1?
Thanks

I'm with Plato. I would have thought that this problem was
which is decidedly not equal to 1.
@ Darkhrse99:
To type out type in:
[ math ] <-- Without the spaces
log_{b}(a)
[ /math ] <-- Again, without the spaces.
I realize that learning LaTeX should not really be necessary to ask questions here, but I can't think of a good way to use the ASCII codes to do logarithms.
