How do you solve #log 5 = (x+1) log 4#?
This would be same as solving a multi-step linear equation only the coefficients and constants are logarithmic numbers. Step by step working is shown below.
Let us distribute
What we see here is not different from any multi-step linear equation .
Say if you had no log and the equation was
We shall use the same trick to solve it, but with the log present.
Now we divide both sides by
The exact solution is
If you want an decimal approximation then you can use a calculator to find it.
