Hey guys. Alright, here's the problem:

(not sure how to do log base 3 in LaTex.. so log.3 = log base 3)

Expand as the sum of individual logarithms, each of whose argument is linear. Simplify your answer: $\displaystyle log.3(\frac{(x + 1)^3 \sqrt{y}}{\sqrt{y + 3}(x + 1)^2})$

I expanded it...

$\displaystyle log.3((x + 1)^3 y^\frac{1}{2}) - log.3((y + 3)^\frac{1}{2}(x + 1)^2)$

but I'm not sure how to go about simplifying it further.. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
