    but the specification literally says they dont set questions based upon the change of base rule (the bit that i outlined it red) so i must be doing this wrong

    5=2 to the x and 3 =2 to the x
    Log 5 / log 2 = x and log 3 / log 2 = x

    And them like you would normally fractions to get the answer then apply log ab = log a + log b
