y^5.6 = 4
Solve for y using logarithms.
I know how to solve this question without logs, and I know how to solve logs when the variable is in the exponent.
This is question is something that I never had to do before. Please help.

I'm assuming this is and that the period isn't used to represent multiplication.
The solution depends on the use of a property of logarithms. I suggest you brush up on the various properties, but the one needed here is that
So, we start by taking the log of both sides, and then we can apply the property:
Now, exponentiating both sides,
I took the natural log (base ) of both sides, but you could use any base.
