Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on logarithms, the focus is on solving equations that contain logarithms. The instructor demonstrates how to use the product and quotient properties of logarithms to simplify log equations, and then proceeds to solve two examples step-by-step. By the end of the lesson, students will have gained an understanding of how to manipulate log equations into exponential form and solve them using algebraic techniques.

    This lesson solves similar equations to the previous lesson but the equations are a bit more tricky in this lesson. The properties of logarithms are used again to simplify the logarithms into a single logarithm and solve for x. All steps are shown and explained in this lesson.
