Convert the following equations into exponential form:

a. X = log36

b. -5 = log3Y

c. X= log4Y

d. 1000 = log5Z

I have an idea. I just find it a little confusing this way.

$\displaystyle \log_{3}6=x$

I am hoping that this is what you mean...

In which case to re-write a logarithim as an exponential you need to use the definition of Log, which is...

$\displaystyle \log_{a}b=c$ is the same is $\displaystyle a^c=b$

so for example the first one would be re-written $\displaystyle 3^6=x$
