Student Practice 9 Evaluate. (a) log 7 1 (b) log 8 8 (c) Find y if log 12 13 = log 12 ( y + 2). We now have the mathematical tools needed to solve a variety of logarithmic equations. EXAMPLE 10 Find x if 2 log 7 3 4 log 7 2 = log 7 x . Solution We can use property 3 in two cases. By substituting these results, we have the following. log 7 9 log 7 16 = log 7 x Student Practice 10 Find x if log 3 2 log 3 5 = log 3 6 + log 3 x . 744745 12.3 Exercises Express as a sum of logarithms. 1. log 3 AB 2. log 12 CD 3. log 5 (7 · 11) 4. log 6 (13 · 5) 5. log b 9 f 6. log b 5 d Express as a difference of logarithms. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
