Yeah I know what the properties are but I don't know how to apply them to this particular problem.

This was what I got and I have no idea if it's right:

1) ln(x^2)+(1/3)ln(x-2)-4

2) = ln(x^2)+ln((x-2)-4)^1/3

3) = ln(x^2((x-2)-4)^1/3

Would you someone mind checking this and showing me how to do it right?
