    maybe the x in italics are multiplication symbols and logarithm will be used to simplify the expression

    then let y = ,

    Then,

    log y = (1/3)log(24-34) + log(201.7) - (1/3)log(3.67)-(1/2)log (16.72)

    y = antilog[(1/3)log(24-34)+log(201.7)-(1/3)log(3.67)-(1/2)log(16.72)];

    BUT, this alone should bother you: (1/3)log(24-34)
