# Core 3 - Logs watch

1. if ln( x^6 y) - 2 ln (xy) + ln (3xy^2) = 2

prove that y = kx^n where k and n are constants

find the exact values of y = kx ^n

1) i've separated the equation:

ln x^6 + lny - 2(lnx + lny) + ln 3x + lny^2 =2

where do I go from here?

No need to separate them. Get them all under the same logarithm instead.

I think you've headed in the wrong direction to start with... kind of. Doesn't mean you can't go on from there, but you've kind of made... 1 more step... I dunno. Maybe that doesn't matter

Think about somehow combining the logs.

so do you get ln( x^6y 3xy^2 / x^2 y^2 ) =2

ln(3x^5y)=2

where do i go from here??

ln is log with base e. So anti-log both sides.

ln is log with base e. So anti-log both sides.
3x^5 y = e^ 2

y= e^2 / 3x^5
7. (Original post by Custardcream000)
3x^5 y = e^ 2

y= e^2 / 3x^5
Yep. You can take the x out of the denominator as

Yep. You can take the x out of the denominator as
so y = (e^2/3) x^-5
9. (Original post by Custardcream000)
so y = (e^2/3) x^-5
Yep.
10. (Original post by RDKGames)
Yep.
