Thanks Agnashom!

One question left and that is;

When one crosses diagonal lines within a rectangle which triangle is formed?

**EbenezerSon**- Replies: 3

Hi; I have some few questions to ask;

(1) Are the internal angles of rhombus, square, rectangle and parallelograms equals 360?

(2) When one makes diagonal angles within rhombus is the triangle formed be an isosceles or equilateral?

(3) When one crosses diagonal lines within a square, is the triangle formed be equilateral or isosceles?

Many thanks

I have made the amendment- thank you

I have bracket

Hi;

I am given it a try concerning the conversion;

Log x = 1/2log x

so, it will be

log (x) = 1/2log (x)

Is that correct?

Please, help.

I don't understand the question.

Show that

Log x = 1/2logx and hence solve log x + 1/2 = logx

In both cases the LHS is in base 4 and the RHS is in base 2

Thanks

This is it;

log(x^2 + 1) - 2logx = 1

Ask the tutor to plug and check his answer.

Yes - have seen the tutor - the tutor gave me a calculator which I plugged 1/3 into the equation and I had 1(one), so it seems his answer is correct. What do you say Bobbym?

Ok. Let me put this

Log(x-3) - logx = 2.

Is negative one (-1) the correct answer?

Good!

Thanks bobym - I will post problems.

Big thanks!

Again;

x = 10/log16

correct?

like this;

xlog16 = 10

No, the original is log16^x.

xlog16 = log10

xlog16 = 1

x = 1/log16

Correct?

Thanks! Bobbym

I am now getting logarithm better.

See;

solve for x in, log16^x.

log16^x = 10

xlog16 = log10

x = log10/log16

correct?

I think your methods are good concerning the simplification of like terms in logs. Thanks for answering.

Look it if it is good

log16^-x = log2 + log7

-xlog16 = log14

x= -log14/log16

Is it good?

Still I haven't come across the tutor - but I will definitely meet him.

My one question is - when do one take antilogs of both sides of an equation?

I am away from the tutor now - but I shall tell him later

Wow!

I confronted a math tutor - but he claimed the answer 1/3 or -1/3 is correct - now I Could realise that your method is good. Please I want the tutor to see for himself your steps because he was insisting that the books' answer is correct

Thanks bobbym

Yes that's the problem - I copied it correctly.

When you plug in your answers does it give 1?

No, it doesn't give 1/3

It is negative or positive 1/3 in the book as an answer. When I get to the house I will punch them in the calculator and see if it really gives negative or positive 1/3.
