Apply logarithms to both sides of an equationI have an equation that looks something like this= a^2+b=c and I want to apply logarithms to both sides of the equation, can someone please tell me how would the equation look like after applying the logarithm to both sides? #2 20130708 16:01:44
Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equationHi; 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. #4 20130708 16:21:33
Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equationWhen you take the log of both sides you get: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equationand if I had something like log(3^3+3^4)=log(3^7), how could I simplify log(3^3+3^4). How could you solve this, because I tried adding what's inside the parenthesis and then applying logarithm and it didn't work. How can I solve this equation?

Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equation
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. Last edited by EbenezerSon (20130709 00:56:15) #12 20130709 01:05:03
Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equation
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. #13 20130709 01:07:55

Re: Apply logarithms to both sides of an equationYes I did it as an example, It not the real values. #17 20130709 01:48:15
