    Did I do this problem correctly... simplifying logs



    I attached the original problem. Thanks for double checking this!

    log4 x3/2 - log4x3
    using the property log a log b = > log(a/b) we get
    log4( x3/2/x3)
    log4(x3/2 -3)
    log4(x-3/2)
    -3/2 log4(x) {using the property alogb = logba)

    log4 [x^(3/2)] - log4(x^3)
    using the property log a – log b = > log(a/b) we get
    log4( x^(3/2)/x^3)
    log4[x^(3/2 -3)]
    log4[x^-(3/2)]
    -3/2 log4(x) {using the property alogb = logba)
    Your maths is fine although the syntax leaves a bit to be desired

    Note I have edited your quote for clarity
