    (3^5/3^3)^2
    = 3^2+2
    =3^4
    = 81

    3log6-log612 + log62=
    log68

    as a final answer?

    Appreciate it if someone could tell me if i'm right or not.

    Thanks,
    Erin

    You got the first one right.
    In the second one, do you mean log63 ?

    how did u get the second answer...? because i really did get log68

    He is asking to rewrite your second problem correctly. What does the 6 mean in the first term?

    Erin sharpe:
    You HAVE to use a less ambiguous notation!!
    Do you mean:
    a) [tex]3log_{6}[/tex]
    b) [tex]3log(6)[/tex]

    And do you mean:
    c) [tex]log_{6}(12)[/tex]
    Or
    d)[tex]log(612)[/tex]
