    hi how do you change the base of this please to make same
    logbase3 (2-3x) = logbase9 (2-3x)

    how can u make the logbase 9 same as logbase 3?what formula thanks

    The formula is loga(x) = logb(x)/logb(a)

     \displaystyle log_ab

    We want to convert it into base  c

     \displaystyle log_ab = \frac{log_cb}{log_ca}

    Your question,  \displaystyle log_9 (2-3x) = \frac{log_3 (2-3x)}{log_39} = \frac{log_3 (2-3x)}{log_33^2} = \frac{log_3 (2-3x)}{2log_33} = \frac{log_3 (2-3x)}{2}

    In this case 2-3x =1 this is so because the log terms must both be zero and the log of one is zero.

    So x equals 1/3 The base 3 and base 9 are irrelevant.

    and for binomial expanssion if for example (3-2x) power n
    how do we work out n/?

    What does n/ mean?

    (3-2x)^n what is the question?

    like you are given with (3-2x) power n and they ask you to find n how do you do that?

    So you are given (3-2x)^7 and asked for the value of n. I would say the answer was seven.

    Give us a REAL question and perhaps we can help.

     (3-2x)^n

    With this much information it is impossible to find the value of 'n'.

    The questions usually give some information about the coefficient of terms which allow to calculate it.

    Did you invent this question?

    Steve asked you to give a REAL question, you won't see such type of questions anywhere.

    I may be missing something BUT I can't see a question. I suggest you give a real question.

    If you don't like to take your time writing you full question then i think we shouldn't waste our time on you.

    Yesterday you said that a question is in the C2 jan 2012 paper, without telling the board.
    Several times you have posted questions regarding the book, without telling which module you are talking about.

    And right now the question you wrote wasn't complete.

    Here is the question:





    Don't mind, but i have tried to explain you several times to tell us the full question, if you talk about a book then tell the module, which book is it, and if exam paper remember to tell the board.

    For doing the question, just expand  \displaystyle \left( 1 + \frac{x}{2} \right)^n

    Equate the coefficient of  x^2 in the expansion with 7.

    Are you asking for help or just messing about.

    The question you posted is incomplete, please give the full question as printed in the book.
