Take this one for example 1/3log7^x +13log7^y - 5log5^z How would I reduce this to a single logarithm?

you should know that apply these two formula you will get the answer

Using that I can get it down to log7(x^(1/3)*y^(13)) -5log5^z What is throwing me off is the different bases. 5 and 7. And then the different variables x,y, and a third variable z.

the number the is multiplies with the Logarithm is a power for what is inside it see this so now

If those numbers after "log" are the base (ie: then you can combine the first two terms using the laws written by Amer Use the change of base rule on this new term and the second term to make them the same base

change bases in logarithms so you can write to change it base so you can apply what I mention before consider as constant right
