hi debjit625

What you have done is equivalent to my version.

Strictly, you should have LHS = ... = ... = ... = RHS.

But you have all the elements to re-write it like that now.

Hints:  1 = log(base n) n      for all n                    and       log(base a)b x log(base b) a = 1 for all a and b

Hi Roy

You need to remove all spaces from those links.

Well that solved the problem ,but still I have questions...
I understood that you used change base formula on LHS to change the base of
$log_45=\frac{log_25}{log_24}=\frac{log_25}{2}$

so your expression (from post 8) becomes (all logs now in base 2):
(2log5)/2 + 1 = (2log5)/2 + log2
Bob

But what I didnt understood is that how you got it on RHS
$2\frac{log_25}{2}$

As per me its like this
$log_{10}2(2log_45+1) = 1$

$2log_45 + 1 = log_210$

$2\frac{log_25}{2} + 1 = log_2(2*5)$

$log_25 + 1 = log_22 + log_25$

Thanks everybody it seems I have to learn a lot ,off course from you guys...

hi debjit625

I'd get everything in the same log base.  As it is easy to get log base 4 into log base 2 that's the next step:

log(base4)5 = log(base2)5/log(base2)4 = (log(base2)5)/2

so your expression (from post 8) becomes (all logs now in base 2):

(2log5)/2 + 1 = (2log5)/2 + log2

Should be easy to finish from there.

I need the next step ...
I am not sure how to prove LHS is equal to 1,shouldn't we only work with LHS and prove/show it is 1?

Thanks

That is correct. Can you proceed from here or do you need the next step?

Sorry I cant understand...
dividing both the sides by "log (base 10) 2" will give us
$2log_45+1 = log_210$
2log(base 4)5 + 1 = log (base 2) 10

Thanks

Hi

See the hidden text from my last post.

I am not sure how to do it ...still confused

debjit625

No,not sure.
I can use that inside the bracket to solve log(base 4) 2 to log/(base2)4 ....

Thanks

Hi debjit625

Yes, that is the one. Do you see how you can use it here?

Ok I was having problem with  Latex.... and yes thats write.

1/log(base a)b = log(base b)a ,is that what you wanted to know

Thanks

Hi debjit625

The LaTeX on this forum isn't functioning at the moment so here is the picture with what you presumably want to show:
$\log_{10}{2}\cdot(2\log_{4}{5}+1)=1$

Do you know what $\frac{1}{\log_{a}{b}}$ is equal to?

debjit625
2013-02-11 02:53:39

May be its simple but I can't solve it...
Show that : log2(2log(base 4) 5 + 1) = 1
$log_{10}2(2log_{4}5+1) = 1$

Thanks
