Yes I did it as an example, It not the real values.

Thanks.

These values are not correct.

See the following:
Solve the following logarithm:

Log6 + Log10.  Given that, Log2=3.14 Log3=616

= Log(2*3)+Log10 = Log2+log3 +log10= (3.14+616+1) = 620.14.

Note that, Log10=1

This is what I mean.

I hope you cotton.

Hi nando

Welcome to the forum!

Well, it depends on the base of the logarithm. If you have the logarithm base 10, then the logarithm of the integer powers of ten will be integers.

Sometimes the when a log question is given, one could arrive on  figures which you must substitute them into it.  Actually the question setter,  will set it in such way that you will arrive on those whole numbers.  An finally you will substitute.

Check very well from the source I suppose there should be some kind of: log2=3.142 or Log3=616 or something,  so that you can substitute into the equation, because to me this log could be solved to some extent but good final solution is not possible. If something of that kind is not provided.

How could I apply a logarithm to 3^3+3^4?

3^3 + 3^4 does not equal 3^7

hi

I'm trying to anticipate your next step; maybe like this would be useful:

When you take the log of both sides you get:
