    Remember that

    logab = c

    is equivalent to

    b = ac

    log2y=-3
    log2y=log-3
    ylog2=log-3
    y=log-3/log2

    hope this helps

    You could confuse the OP by posting something like that, I can't tell if you're joking.

    Is it log(2y) or log2(y) as in log to the base 2? Just to note that if there's no base given, that implies base 10, which will mean your answer will be (10^-3 )/2.

    Don't mind, but your concepts of logs are very weak. I remember that you have asked a lot of question before about logs, first you need to get good at this yourself then answer others. Otherwise, you will just confuse the OP.

    The question is:  log_2y=-3

    We will solve it by writing it as,  2^{-3} = y

    I think i have explained this stuff to you before, right?

    You can't do this:
    log2y=-3
    log2y=log-3
    ylog2=log-3
    y=log-3/log2


    Remember if you have something like,  log_ab^c, then you can write it as,  clog_ab , but you are doing wrong.

    You NEED to have a look, your concepts are still unclear.

    Don't be pessimistic, you still have time to improve.

    dongonaeatu, you just gotta write out the 4 or 5 log rules out next to each other and rote memorise them one by one. You gotta have them all there on the same page so you don't get them mixed up.
