Unformatted text preview: Lesson_8.4_LawsofLogs.notebook 8.4 Laws of Logarithms Recall: Exponent Laws (1) Products (2) Quotients (3) Power of a Power m n m + n m n m ­ n (a )(a ) = a (a )÷(a ) = a (am)n = amn We can derive similar laws for logarithms. #1: Product Law for Logarithms Determine an equivalent expression for loga(mn), where a, m, and n are positive numbers and a ≠1. Laws of Logarithms (provided a > 0, m > 0, n > 0, and a ≠ 1) loga(mn) = loga(m/n) = loga(m)c = Example 1 Express as a single logarithm. (b) log(8) + log(9) (a) log5224 – log57 (c) log6(x2 – 9) – 2 log6(x – 3) Lesson_8.4_LawsofLogs.notebook Example 2 Evaluate each expression using the laws of logarithms.
