# C2 Logarithms watch

1. 1) How do you simplify log equations when they are being added to another number, eg 2 + log3?

2) I'm stuck on this question attached as an image. To solve it, I moved the 1/2 from the beginning and did (1+ 9/16) ^ 1/2, then merged them using the adding/multiplication rule, but it became quite complex and I didn't get the right answer (which is 3)

1) assuming denotes

2) There's nothing to solve, I assume you meant simplify? so what is ?? Then you should end up with and just use your log rules to simplify.
