Here's 2 I couldn't get. 8log27 log3x2 = log481/2 Solve for x For the first one I thought I should solve what's in the exponent first and then solve 8 to that power, but I can't figure out what to do with the exponent. I'm even more clueless on the second one/ The bases are different, and I can't out what to do with the x2 and 81/2 Can someone please explain this to me? What properties should I use to solve these problems? I'm supposed to do these without a calculator, and that's what I'm trying to do.
