    Re: Logarithmic Expression

    just use the power and product rules of logs

    $\log_{10}(x^a)=a \log_{10}(x)$

    $\log_{10}(a b) = \log_{10}(a)+\log_{10}(b)$

    remember

    $\sqrt{x}=x^\frac{1}{2}$

    $\sqrt[3]{x}=x^\frac{1}{3}$

    @nycmath, This may be the last reply I shall ever give you.
    Frankly I am fed-up with your posting a raw question, but with your showing no effort whatsoever.

    $\log \left[ {\sqrt[3]{{x\sqrt {1 + {y^2}} }}} \right] = \frac{1}{3}\left[ {\log (x) + \frac{1}{2}\log \left( {1 + {y^2}} \right)} \right]$

    I will show my part from now on. Perhaps you will be able to see where I went wrong.
