Hi, I am trying to solve an equation involving Log. Heres the input and output
Solve[2 Log[a, x] - Log[a, (x-1)] == Log[a, (x-2)],x]
What wrong am I doing? Is it a problem with framing the question(like eliminating logs and then trying to solve) or the inability of Mathematica to solve such equations?
Also, when I try to simplify:
Simplify[ Log[a, x^2]\ + 3 Log[a, x] + 2 Log[a, 4 x]])
(5Log[x] + Log[16 x^2])/Log[a]
instead of Log with base a of (x^3/16)
