Main Question or Discussion Point

Can some one check my answers please?

The answers are in my reply post at the bottom of this page THANKS :smile:


I have a couple more log questions Im stuck on. They keep giving me log questions that they never showed me how to do.. very fustrating!
I need to evaluate the following logarithms:

68 a). log22^log55
I dont even know where to begin.. I never done a log with an exponent log???

69. log25=log2(x+32)-log2x

Determine the derivative of:
70 c) y= 2x^3 e^4x

e) y= square root(x^3 + e^-x +5)
I know this one should probably go to. (x^3 + e^-x +5)^1/2... then,
dy/dx= (x^3 + e^-x +5)^1/2 * 1/2(x^3 + e^-x +5)^-1/2 * (3x^2)now im confused??? does the e^-x have a derivative?? like -xe^-2?? i got no idea.
CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE....
THANKZ YA!

For part a, is that

[tex](\log_{2}2)^{\log_{5}5}[/tex] or [tex] \log_{2}(2)^{\log_{5}5}[/tex]?

Hrm

[tex] \log_{5} 5 = 1 [/tex]

[tex] 5^1 = 5 [/tex]

[tex] log_{2} 5= log_{2} (x+32) - log_{2} x [/tex]

[tex] log_{2} 5= log_{2} \frac{x+32}{x} [/tex]

[tex] 5 = \frac{x+32}{x} [/tex]
