Please always post the entire question.
You are quite right is cannot be -1 as written.
What base is the log?
Base 10 doesn't equal -1.
Base e doesn't equal -1.
This the entire question, but someone please explain to me not solve, how does that part of the equation equal -1?
This equals on my calculator.
Now that makes more sense.
If then .
Can you solve that?
how would i find b?

How would you solve for b?
so now do i use log 1/2+radical 5 to solve for f(-2)?
Such as log#(-2+radical5)?
#= 1/2+radical 5
ok i got that, but how do you find the exponent of a radical?
