Logarithm bases -> continue

Recommended Posts

Hey, my teacher told me to put 1/c + 1/d into a single fraction.
He made it sound so easy, but when I came to doing it, I got little confused ;)

And also he told me to express log (base ab)x only in terms of logs.

Can you help?? ASAP :D

1/c + 1/d = (c + d)/cd

logab(x) = lnx/lnab

At the risk of sounding a bit harsh, you should probably be at the point where this stuff comes naturally, and if not, then I'd reccomend just doing more practice questions from logs and algebra.

isnt it cd/(c+d)?
cuz for example, log(base4)64,log(base 8)64, log(base32)64
log(base4)64=3,so c=3, log(base 8)64=2, so d=2
log(base32)64=1.2 which is log(base ab)X=1.2
if it is (c+d)/cd, the answer should be (3+2)/3*2=5/6
so i think it should be cd/(c+d), so 3*2/(3+2)=1.2
tell me if im right or wrong

1/1 + 1/1 = (1+1)/1*1 = 2, NOT 1*1/(1+1) = 1/2.[/quote]

hy, thanks for helping out, but I asked my teacher and he said it was cd/(c+d) >.< Edited by HJ:)
