I'll take a guess at where that -1 belongs.
Whatever was meant, it doesn't simplify very much.
Using every log-trick I know, I can only rewrite it . . .
We have: .
I used the Base-change Formula on the exponent:
See? . . . It's no simpler than the original expression.
which is not really simpler, just different. state your intentions and we can take it from there
This here is what I want to simplify.I want to simplify it for my algorithm class.My professor said that I shouldn't leave it like this nad perhaps should simplify.e^pi*i ,I like your way,but I know there's another way to do it,which has something to do with the property of the common base in the logarithms.
