    quick help with logs

    solve:
    \log_{7} \left ( {\frac{1}<br />
{\sqrt{7}}} \right )

    how would you go about this w/o a calculator

    7^x = \frac{1}{\sqrt{7}}

    or

    \log_{7}1 - \log_{7}\sqrt{7} = x

    or

    \log_{7}1 - \log_{7}\sqrt{7} = x
    \log_{7} \left( \frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt{7} } \right) = \log_{7} \left( 7^{- \frac{1}{2} } \right)

    Does this help you?

    \log_{7}1 - \log_{7}\sqrt{7} = x

    \log_{7} \left ( {\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}}} \right ) = \log_{7}1 - \log_{7}\sqrt{7}

    \log_{7}1 = 0

    \log_{7} \left ( {\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}}} \right ) = - \log_{7}\sqrt{7}

    \log_{7}\sqrt{7} = \log_{7}7^\frac{1}{2} = \frac{1}{2}\log_{7}7

    \log_{7}7 = 1

    \log_{7} \left ( {\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}}} \right ) = - \frac{1}{2}
