    Do you mean express the following as a single logarithm?

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

    Or did you mean this:

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

    It is almost impossible to read your notation.
    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))\$

    ${\log _6}\left( {\dfrac{x}{{\sqrt[5]{{x{y^2}}}}}} \right)$
