Hi guys....I seriously need help here.

I'm doing C2....Logarithms & Exponentials.

I am at a point where I have a type of

y^2 + x^2 + xy equation

I am not sure how to factorise it.....the equation itself is:

logx^2 - 9(log2)^2 - 8logxlog2

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

is it log(x^2) or (logx)^2? If it is (logx)^2, then we can write it as:

x^2 - 9y^2 - 8xy, where x = logx, y = log2

which can be factorised as:

(x-9y)(x+y)
