Re: Simplify the following:I don't seem to understand the step 3. #152 20130725 19:53:15#153 20130725 20:04:51
Re: Simplify the following:Yes. if you look at the my example, log ten raises to the power two. And not log5^2 #154 20130725 20:09:50
Re: Simplify the following:log(3^x) breaks down into xlog(3) regarldless of base 10 or base e or base 2. 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. #155 20130725 20:26:59
Re: Simplify the following:Yes, I understand that law, so now, log2^x1= xlog2  log2 #156 20130725 20:29:12
Re: Simplify the following:What example do you mean? 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. #157 20130725 20:55:13
Re: Simplify the following:The book has this example. #158 20130725 20:57:25
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. #159 20130725 21:14:59
Re: Simplify the following:I am comparing two things because I dont understand your step 2. #160 20130725 21:19:53
Re: Simplify the following:2  2 log(5) is the same as 2  log(5^2) you can not switch them. 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. #161 20130725 22:16:17
Re: Simplify the following:How different is this x1log2 in the previous problem from 22log5 in the example. Last edited by EbenezerSon (20130725 22:33:48) #162 20130725 22:33:26
Re: Simplify the following:22log5 = log10^2log5^2 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. #163 20130725 22:41:33
Re: Simplify the following:Thats what is written in the book. #164 20130725 22:45:10
Re: Simplify the following:No, that is correct. I did not see it at first. 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. #165 20130725 22:59:17
Re: Simplify the following:Please I what you to answer my question at #161 #166 20130725 23:02:51
Re: Simplify the following:(x1) log2 = xlog21log2. 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. #167 20130725 23:15:07
Re: Simplify the following:Please provide a link for that. #168 20130725 23:17:39
Re: Simplify the following:log(10^2) is 2 log(10). log(10) in base 10 is 1. 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. #169 20130726 01:58:41
Re: Simplify the following:
Why the last step is not: Since the law says. for instance log2log2 = log2/log2. #170 20130726 13:21:48
Re: Simplify the following:What law says that? 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. #171 20130726 17:32:59
Re: Simplify the following:This is what I mean, and it is one of the laws of logarithm in my book: #172 20130726 18:03:09
Re: Simplify the following:That is not the law: 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. #173 20130727 03:32:47
Re: Simplify the following:
Then how did you arrived at the last stage? Could you explain to me? Last edited by EbenezerSon (20130727 03:34:29) #174 20130727 10:46:46
Re: Simplify the following:If you were solving 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. #175 20130728 01:54:01
Re: Simplify the following:But I am sure if you had not added log2 to both sides you would still arrive at the same answer, is not that?
