to make and
into base 4.
i was going through my hw and got stuck on this question- and i haven't been able to figure how on earth to do it! does anyone have any ideas? this is really bugging me now.
if log2 x, (1 + log4 x), log8 4x are consecutive terms of a geometric sequence, determine the possible values of x.
all i know is the properties of a logarithm and the formula for a geometric sequence is tn= ar^(n-1). is it possible for me to use the concept of t2/t1= t3/t2, etc with logs? and how can i find x? i really dont have a clue and id be happy for any hints, advice or an answer.
is fine, as is any other base.
I just naturally choose because it is the most commonly used.
Once you've converted everything to the same base, you use your standard logarithm and algebra rules to simplify and solve for .
