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

Define a, b, and c as the sides of a right triangle where c is the hypotenuse, and a > 1 and c > b+1

show that

[tex]log_{c+b} a + log_{c-b} a = 2(log_{c+b} a)(log_{c-b} a)[/tex]

2. Governing equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Should I assume that a=2 and c=b+2?!
