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

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

    If you mean [itex]\frac{2+ log 5}{log 2}[/itex] 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.
