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

is ln(x)^{3}the same as saying [ln(x)]^{3}? Also, if there is a difference, which one applies to the exponent being moved into the front of the logarithm as in 3ln(x)?

2. Relevant equations

natural logarithms

3. The attempt at a solution

I just got tripped up on the notation. Normally I see logarithms written as ln(x)^{3}, but when I saw this, I wasn't quite sure if it was the same or not. I wasn't too sure if it was like sin^{2}(x) and [sin(x)]^{2}.
