1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/ Simplify: log base 2 x^2*y^3 2. Relevant equations I know that log base 2 x^2 * y^3 is log base 2 x^2 + log base 2 y^3 3. The attempt at a solution Here is what I thought: 2 log base 2 x + 3 log base 2 y But that does not seem to be simplified, it seems to be more complicated. Is there something else I should have done?
