    This lesson goes through a bunch more practice problems to illustrate how the properties of logarithms can be used to simplify and rewrite expressions. All steps and work involved in simplifying these expressions are explained and shown. This will especially help solidify the product and quotient rules for you. Substitution is used in these problems and some of the methods used to simplify are a little tricky.
