Homework Help: Logarithm Q

  1. Feb 27, 2005 #1
    Simplify

    1/2[Loga N - Loga (N - 1)]

    I get something like

    1/2[Loga N / (N-1)]

    Loga root[ N / ( N-1 )

    Loga root [ (N * ( N + 1)) / N^2 - 1 ]

    I don't find that a simplification,but a complication...The first row after the initial formula was somehow simpler,but the rest is merely useless writing.
