I am starting my first year of college and I reviewing my high school notes from trig pre-cal and there was one thing I couldnt figure out. It was a multiple choice question and I dont have the text book anymore but the answer I circled I cant understand how I arrived to that answer. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given that x> 0 and y> 0, simplify e^ln(x) + ln(y) 3. The attempt at a solution What I did was: e^ln(x+y) e^x+y and I circled the answer: X+Y, but I get e^x+y which as an answer. All I wrote was ln and e cancel but I dont understand how they cancel.
