Re: Simplify the following:Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #177 20130728 19:05:52

Re: Simplify the following:Okay, but bobbym, the law logxlogy= logx/logy. #180 20130728 20:04:02

Re: Simplify the following:Hi; Multiple everything by 2^x to clear fractions out. Factor the left side. So (2x1) = 0 and (2x1) =0 2x1 = 0 then x = 0 2x1 = 0 then x = 0 x = 0 is the answer.

Re: Simplify the following:I had zero as the answer. #184 20130729 00:03:09

Re: Simplify the following:The book has x=0 or 1 as answer at its back. #186 20130729 02:32:22#187 20130729 03:37:05

Re: Simplify the following:I have considered it carefully, but see no way to solve than what I have done, please assist. #191 20130730 06:18:27
Re: Simplify the following:Hi; Factor out a 3^(x1) from each term on the left. Divide both sides by 4. Take log of both sides, you get. (x1) log(3) = 0 Divide both sides by log(3) x  1 = 0 x = 1 See you later, I need to do some chores and shopping. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I don't understand how you factored it out. #193 20130730 13:27:17

Re: Simplify the following:Hi;
You had what for x? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #196 20130804 04:24:05
Re: Simplify the following:I had 20. #197 20130804 04:25:30
Re: Simplify the following:Both answers are wrong. The correct answer is 1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Simplify the following:how about if the log4 were to be log45. What would the answer be? #199 20130804 04:34:50
Re: Simplify the following:You mean log(45) then x = 21. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
