For the first part, do you know how to find the domain of a function?
For the next, there are various approaches. What did you try? Here's one suggestion:
Taking logs:
..etc.
For the last part, will be a factor if
Hi guys! I would really love help with some questions on my exam review. My exam is tomorrow and I'm completely confused! Help would be very much appreciated.
Find the domain of:
Solve for X:
I know I need to make them the same base, but I don't know what would be simplest way to do that here.
Determine if (x - 1) is a factor of:
I have absolutely no clue what to do here, except synthetic division with 762 places...

Usually for a rational I would just factor the denominator, but this isn't factorable by the conventional (x +/- a)(x +/- b)... method and I'm not sure if/how the log would affect the answer.
Ah I see, okay that makes sense.
How do you know, though? Is there some way of finding that out without using synthetic division?
If , then . This cannot be the case for real values of . The only thing restricting the domain is .
I'm glad, although I'd be surprised if you had nothing in your notes to cover this.
Yes, using the factor theorem.
Wait, I'm confused as to how you got the
I missed pretty much all the discussion about logs so this is very foreign to me...
And for the one about factor theorem, I got a remainder of -2 so it would be no, right? Does that seem right?
You're right about the factor/remainder theorem.
However, it's very obvious that you have very little understanding when it comes to the concept of logarithms. You need to catch up on missed work quickly rather than on the night before your exam. You require more help than you can receive in a quick forum session. I suggest finding an online review of this topic, which you'll need to study for a few hours until you have a thorough understanding.
