7-5 Properties of Logarithms

Rolling them out and Wrapping them up


Definitions

Definitions

  • 1. Product Property

  • 2. QuotientProperty

  • 3. Power Property

  • The above will be on the quiz!


Product property

Product Property

  • b, m, & n must be positive numbers and b ≠ 1

  • log bmn = log b m + log b n

  • Examples:

    • log 4 21 = log 4 (3 · 7)

      = log 4 3 + log 4 7

    • log 3 27 = log 3 (3 * 9)

      = log 3 3 + log 3 9

      = 1 + 2

      = 3

    • log 3 4x = log 3 4 + log 3 x


Quotient rule

Quotient Rule

  • b, m, & n must be positive numbers and b ≠ 1

  • log b = log b m – log b n

  • Examples:

    • log 4 = log 4 3 – log 4 7

    • log 3 = log 3 2 – log 3 x

  • Notice the numerator is listed first and the denominator is subtracted from it

Power property

Power Property

  • b, m, & n must be positive numbers and b ≠ 1

  • log bmn = n log b m

  • Examples:

    • log 4 49 = log 4 72

      = 2 log 4 7

    • log 2 512 = log 2 83

      = 3 log 2 8

      = 3 · 3

      = 9


Using properties to expand an expression

Using properties to expand an expression

  • log 6 =log 6 5x3 – log 6 y Quotient Property

    = log 6 5 + log 6 x3 – log 6 y Product Property

    = log 6 5 + 3 log 6 x – log 6 y Power Property

y

Using properties to condense an expression

  • 5 log 4 2 + 7 log 4 x – 4 log 4 y

  • log 4 25 + log 4 x7 – log 4 y4Power Property

  • log 4 25x7 – log 4 y4 Product Property

  • log4 = log 4Quotient Property & Simplify
