## Solution of exercise 1

Solve the logarithmic equations.

1

Applying the logarithmic power rule here, we will get the following expression:

Write the two terms on the left hand side as a single log function by applying logarithm product rule:

Since both sides of the equation has log functions, so you can write the resultant expression without them like this:

Set the equation equal to 0 by taking on the left hand side of the equation:

The above fraction can be written as:

Either or

Hence, , or

If we substitute in the original equation, we will end up taking the log of negative number which is impossible. Hence, this equation has No Solution.

By taking the factors from right hand side of the equation to the left hand side and setting the equation to 0, we will get the following expression:

Suppose

By substituting the value in the equation, we will get the following new equation:

We will factor the above equation by expanding it and writing the factors in two pairs like this:

Either or

Hence, t = 1 or t = -2

Remember that we assumed , hence we can say that or

By converting the above values in exponential form, we get the following values of :

and

4

Apply the power rule here to write the equation as follows:

Cancel the log functions on both sides of the equation to get the following algebraic expression:

Use the formula to expand the right hand side of the equation:

5

Take the expression from the denominator on the left hand side to the numerator on the right hand side of the equation:

Apply the logarithm power rule here to get the following equation:

Cancel the log functions from both sides of the equation and solve the resultant equation algebraically:

Find factors of above expression by expanding it:

Hence, or

## Solution of exercise 2

Solve the logarithmic simultaneous equations.

and Hence, or

If , then

If then

We can rewrite the second equation using the exponent product rule:

Suppose and

We will solve this equation through substitution:

Substitute this value of in the second equation:

Put this value of in the first equation to get the value of :

Remember that and

Hence, and

Since, 2 raised to the power 2 is equal to 4, so the value of .

Similarly, 3 raised to the power 3 is equal to 27, so .
