From exactly how you have written it, it isn't. Are there any other brackets you may have omitted?

What you have written: $2+ \frac{log 5}{log 2}$ is not at all different from $\frac{log 5}{log 2}+ 2$.

If you mean $\frac{2+ log 5}{log 2}$ then that is quite different. It is just that the way you are writing it is not clear whether you mean 2+ (log 5/log 2) or (2+ log 5)/log 2.
