i have a problem here that has stumped me. any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in ADVANCE!
That does not, however, change the methods or processes. You still start by log rules to simplify the left-hand side, and then use the definition of logarithms to convert the equation to its equivalent exponential form. Then you solve the equation (which, for subtraction, is a rational equation).
If you get stuck, please reply showing how far you have gotten. Thank you!
