1 MA 15200 Lesson 29 Section 4.3 This lesson is on the properties of logarithms. Properties of logarithms model the properties of exponents. I Product Rule Product Rule of Exponents : m n m n b b b Notice: When the bases were the same, the exponents were added when multiplication was performed. Likewise logarithms are added when multiplication is performed in the argument. Product Rule of Logarithms : log ( ) log log b b b MN M N  In words, the logarithm of a product is the sum of the logarithms. When a single logarithm is written using this product rule, we say we are expanding the logarithmic expression. Ex 1: Assume all variables represent positive values. Use the product rule to expand each expression and simplify where possible.   2 2 5 ) log (7 ) ) log 2 ) log(100 ) ) ln(20 ) b ar b x y c ab de II Quotient Rule Quotient Rule for Exponents : m mn n b b b Notice: When the bases were the same, the exponents were subtracted when division was performed. Likewise, logarithms are subtracted when division is performed in the argument.
