1. logyx = 3
log3x-log3y = 5

I have to find exact values for x and y but i don't know where to start
2. From equation 1, y^3=x so sub this into equation 2.

thanks, i think i get it now
4. That would give you log3 (y^3÷y) = 5
5. Then finally remove logs

i got Y to be 9*square root of 3
is that right?
