I did several of these but am confused by this one.
let a= log2 5 and b= log3 2. Express the following in terms of a, b, or both.
log2 6=? and log5 3=?
cancel the first one, I figured it out. I am now trying (and trying) the log5 3= (and that 5 is supposed to be the base of the log...I just realized that there's html math commands but haven't used them yet.)
Hello, jlefholtz!
These require some Olympic-level gymnastics . . .
Theorem: .Let: .
Express the following in terms of and/or .
(1) We have: .
. . . . Hence: . .[1]
. . .We are given: .
. . .Substitute into [1]: .
(2) We are given: .
Raise [3] to the power
But from [1]: .
. . So we have: .
We have: .
