    Hey people really struggling with this question got no idea how to solve it

    1) Express log (2 root 10) - 1/3 log 0.8 - log(10/3) in the form c + log d where c and d are rational numbers and the logarithms are to base 10.

    Any thoughts? All I can do it say log (2 root 10) - log(0.8^1/3) - log(10/3)

    No clue what to do next, the answer is meant to be log 3 - 1/6.

    Thanks

    Note that
    log(a)+log(b) = log(ab)
    log(a)-log(b) = log(a/b)
    and log(10) = 1
