Is the answer to this correct?

1/2ln(a+4)+ln(b)-5ln(c) is the answer ln b/c^5(a+4)^1/2 ?

I just need to know if this answer is right,and should the format of the equation look like that also? Because the Math palette I submit it in needs to have it a certain way or else it will mark it as wrong.

If you are to simplify it then I would say so. Just use another set of parenthesis to separate the b/c^5 from the (a+4)^1/2 since it would be hard to tell if the (a+4)^1/2 is on the numerator or denominator.

So then (a+4)^1/2 should be the denominator?

No it's in the numerator, only the c5 is in the denominator.
