Write the expression log6x-1/5(log6x+2log6y) as a single logarithm.

Thank you!!

Do you mean express the following as a single logarithm?

$\displaystyle \log_6 x - \dfrac{1}{5\left(\log_6 x + 2\log_6 y\right)}$

Or did you mean this:

$\displaystyle \log (6 x) - \dfrac{1}{5\left(\log (6 x) + 2\log(6 y)\right)}$

Is it $\log_6(x)-\frac{1}{5}(\log_6(x)+2\log_6(y))~?$ In LaTeX code it is \$\log_6(x)-\frac{1}{5}(\log_6(x)+2\log_6(y))\$
${\log _6}\left( {\dfrac{x}{{\sqrt[5]{{x{y^2}}}}}} \right)$
