Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to use the properties of logs to condense an expression. The instructor demonstrates all three properties of logs and shows you how to simplify an expression using these properties. The key is to work left to right and to remember that multiplication and division are inverses of each other, as are addition and subtraction. By following these guidelines, you can condense any log expression into a simpler form.

How to use the properties of logs to condense an expression

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.
