The question:
Find the Cartesian form of (note that this is the principle branch logarithm)
My attempt:
I'm not sure how to deal with the square. I recall that the index and log laws do not hold in this context. So how do I deal with it?
Ahh yes, now that I double checked, the index law does hold, but the log laws don't. I'm think I'm confusing principle value exponents with exponentials. :/
I continued and did this:
=
However it's the principle log, so k = 0.
=
However, the solution is
Any suggestions?
