Hello, NidhiS!
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.
what was the original problem? why do you want to simplify this. perhaps there is something else you want to get at that we do not have to do this. because it is messy. using the rule , we can get this down to
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.
