### High School Mathematics3.18 Logarithm of a Product

 Log x ab = log x a + log x b. Proof: log x ab = p, therefore ab = xp--------I Let log x a = q, a = xq---------------II log x b = r, b = xr----------III From I and II, ab = xq.xr = xq+r from I, ab = xp------IV from I, II, III and IV, we get xp = xq+r Therefore, p = q + r Therefore, log x ab = log x a + log x b The logarithm of the product of two numbers is equal to the sum of the logarithms of those to numbers. Example: log 2 3*5 = log 2 3 + log 2 5. Directions: Solve the following problems. Also write at least five examples of your own.
