ok I hate logs so how would I simplify: z= 3- 3 log(x+y) thank you

$z=3 \big(1-\log (x+y)\big)=3\log\left( \dfrac{e}{x+y}\right) $ Which one do you think is "simpler"?

solving for z
sorry guys I posted the question wrong! log z = 3 - 3log(x+y)
$z=\left(\dfrac{e}{x+y}\right)^3$

thank you so much!
