    The scope/limitation of logab X

    loga X = C and logb X = D
    i got it up to log ab X = (cd)/(c+d)
    the question asked what the scope and/or limitations are. I know that ab and X can't be negatives but i dont know the rest

    I presume you are asking about restrictions on the base of a logarithm and the domain. "not negative" is not enough. They also cannot be zero. ab and X must be positive.

    Hello, Bzaher!

    \log_a X \,=\, c,\;\;\log_b X \,=\, d

    i got it up to: . \log_{ab} X \:=\:\frac{cd}{c+d}

    The question asked what the scope and/or limitations are.
    The scope and limitations of what?

    Here are the restrictions: . \begin{Bmatrix}X \:>\:0 \\<br />
a \,>\,0,\;a\,\neq\,1 \\ b\,>\,0,\;b\,\neq\,1 \\ c+d\,\neq\,0\end{Bmatrix}
