(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm doing a physics lab and need to do the uncertainties, and the method I'm using is the natural log method, hich goes like this:

(equation used was k*(x^a)*(y^b)*(z^c) )

The equation I'm doing:

I'm just wondering how it simplifies (the right most part of the first picture) so that I can take the partial dervs. (The Inside of ln is my actualy equation, calorimetry.)

2. Relevant equations

I don't know, otherwise I would apply them!

3. The attempt at a solution

It's a pretty straight foward problem, once I see it down once I think I can do it all the time in the future. The main problem I am having is dealing with the things in the denominator.

Thanks!
