# Properties of Logarithms

Do you want to know how to Properties of Logarithms? you can do it in two easy steps.

## Step by step guide to Properties of Logarithms

Learn some logarithms properties:

• $$a^{\log_{a}{b}}=b$$
• $$\log_{a}{1}=0$$
• $$\log_{a}{a}=1$$
• $$\log_{a}{x.y}=\log_{a}{x}+\log_{a}{y}$$
• $$\log_{a}{\frac{x}{y}}=\log_{a}{x}-\log_{a}{y}$$
• $$\log_{a}{\frac{1}{x}}=-\log_{a}{x}$$
• $$\log_{a}{x^p}=p\log_{a}{x}$$
• $$\log_{x^k}{x}=\frac{1}{x}\log_{a}{x}, for k\neq0$$
• $$\log_{a}{x}=\log_{a^c}{x^c}$$
• $$\log_{a}{x}=\frac{1}{\log_{x}{a}}$$

### Example 1:

Expand this logarithm. $$log ⁡(8×5)=$$

Solution:

Use log rule: $$\log_{a}{x.y}=\log_{a}{x}+\log_{a}{y}$$

then: $$log ⁡(8×5)= log 8 + log 5$$

### Example 2:

Condense this expression to a single logarithm. $$log 2-log 9=$$

Solution:

Use log rule: $$\log_{a}{\frac{x}{y}}=\log_{a}{x}-\log_{a}{y}$$

then: $$log 2-log 9= \log{\frac{2}{9}}$$

### Example 3:

Expand this logarithm. $$log ⁡(2×3)=$$

Solution:

Use log rule: $$\log_{a}{x.y}=\log_{a}{x}+\log_{a}{y}$$

then: $$log ⁡(2×3)= log 2 + log 3$$

### Example 4:

Condense this expression to a single logarithm. $$log 4-log 3=$$

Solution:

Use log rule: $$\log_{a}{\frac{x}{y}}=\log_{a}{x}-\log_{a}{y}$$

then: $$log 4-log 3= \log{\frac{4}{3}}$$
