How do you solve #log (x – 2) + log x = log 3#?
Use the rules
Put all the logs on one side of the equation:
Now, convert to exponential form. You are in base 10, since nothing is noted in subscript by the log.
It is always vital to check your solutions after solving logarithmic equations. Neither solutions work, because the log of a negative number is undefined in the real number system. Therefore, this equation has no solution
