Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to expand a logarithm as a difference of multiple logarithms. By using the properties of logarithms, we can rewrite a logarithm with a division as a difference of logarithms. This also applies if there is a variable in the denominator, which can be brought up to the numerator with a negative exponent. By following these steps, we can simplify logarithms and make them easier to work with.

Expanding a logarithm as a difference of multiple logarithms

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
