## log help

Completely lost as to how to start this... only things Ive noticed so far are that bases of each log are all exponents of 2.

Would appreciate the help understanding this problem :P

Err srry... When x =2; the log base 4 of x is half that of log base 2 of x; and the log base 8 of x is a third of the log base 2 of x.. Had it backwards!

This leaves me kinda where i have been stuck at just from a slightly different approach...

Im sure I am forgetting some basic algebra rules; I treat as a variable and perform basic algebra getting and then

haha wow! I mustve made a calculator error earlier because redoing this in my head as i type it works out!

Fowling my observations from earlier 6 + half of 6 + a 3rd of 6 = 11!

Thx for the help! The exponential relationship between bases is pretty cool! is always going to be twice that of
