Is $\displaystyle logx$ defined for $\displaystyle x = 0$?

No, because x > 0. Is this correct?

---

Evaluate:

1) $\displaystyle log( \frac {1}{10^2} )$

$\displaystyle -2$?

2) $\displaystyle log_3 \sqrt3$

$\displaystyle - \frac {1}{3}$ ?

3) $\displaystyle log_93$

$\displaystyle \sqrt3$ ?

Can you please check to see if I did the questions correctly?

the domain of the logarithm is x > 0. because there is no power we can raise a number to to get 0

Evaluate:

1) $\displaystyle log( \frac {1}{10^2} )$

$\displaystyle -2$?
correct

2) $\displaystyle log_3 \sqrt3$

$\displaystyle - \frac {1}{3}$ ?
wrong. what is $\displaystyle \sqrt{3}$ written as 3 to some power?

3) $\displaystyle log_93$

$\displaystyle \sqrt3$ ?
wrong. what power do we have to raise 9 to to get 3?

2) $\displaystyle \frac {1}{2}?$

3) $\displaystyle \frac {1}{2}?$

yes, those are the answers to your questions
