log(base3)x + log(base3)(2x+51) = 4
a) thank you for helping, I am a new member and love the looks of this site.
b) i am not asking you to do this, maybe just some help I am stuck
c) its not really homework, i am studying for a test on monday and just cant understand this
1) I know the rules of logs and this is where i get stuck:
? now do i divide both sides by 2? or should I have done that before i got rid of log(base3)?
p.s. I know how to factor, but not something like 2x^2+51x-81=0
Any help would be amazing, even a little input if your not sure to get me thinking. Thanks!
