log x2 = 2 is the same as 2 log x = 2 (from the properties of logarithms), and this is true for x = 10, because log x2 = 2 2 log x = 2 log x = 1 log10 x = 1 x = 101 x = 10 (check)

2 log(x) + 3 log(x) = 105 log(x) = 10log(x) = 10/5 = 210log(x) = (10)2x = 100

When the logarithm is taken of any number to a power the result is that power times the log of the number; so taking logs of both sides gives: e^x = 2 → log(e^x) = log 2 → x log e = log 2 Dividing both sides by log e gives: x = (log 2)/(log e) The value of the logarithm of the base when taken to that base is 1. The logarithms can be taken to any base you like, however, if the base is e (natural logs, written as ln), then ln e = 1 which gives x = (ln 2)/1 = ln 2 This is in fact the definition of a logarithm: the logarithm to a specific base of a number is the power of the base which equals that number. In this case ln 2 is the number x such that e^x = 2. ---------------------------------------------------- This also means that you can calculate logs to any base if you can find logs to a specific base: log (b^x) = y → x log b = log y → x = (log y)/(log b) In other words, the log of a number to a given base, is the log of that number using any [second] base you like divided by the log of the base to the same [second] base. eg log₂ 8 = ln 8 / ln 2 = 2.7094... / 0.6931... = 3 since log₂ 8 = 3 it means 2³ = 8 (which is true).

It cannot be done because the base for the second log is not given.
