 Question 147718: Can you help me with this please? What is the difference between #1 and #2 below? #1 --> Log(A * B) #2 --> Log(A) * Log(B) also... compare: #1 - Log2(2 * 8) vs. #2 - Log2(2)*Log2(8) Are the values different? Why? Can you show me another example? Thank youAnswer by mangopeeler07(462)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The values are not the same. #1 --> Log(A * B) #2 --> Log(A) * Log(B) plug in a value for log, a value for A, and a value for B. Like so: 4(3x5)=60. 4(3)x 4(5)=240. NOT THE SAME!!! ------------------------------------------------------------- However, #1 --> Log(A + B) #2 --> Log(A) + Log(B) 4(3+5)=32 4(3)+4(5)=32 THE SAME!!! -------------------------------------------------------------
