    exponential

    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.

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

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