Write the expression as a single logarithm whose coefficient is 1. Where possible, evaluate logarithmic expressions. Here is my problem: log5(x + 4) – log5(x + 1) log5 x + 4/x + 1 THis is what I got but can you condence it more.```Found 2 solutions by ilana, AnlytcPhil:Answer by ilana(307)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!This looks simplified to me.

Write the expression as a single logarithm whose coefficient is 1. Where possible, evaluate logarithmic expressions. Here is my problem: log5(x + 4) – log5(x + 1) log5 x + 4/x + 1 This is what I got but can you condence it more. I'm sorry, but that is wrong. There are only three rules for condensing logarithms: 1. logBA + logBC = logBAC A 2. logBA - logBC = logB--- C 3 A·logBC = logBCA With this log5(x+4) - log5(x+1) You can only use the second one above: x+4 log5 --- x+1 Edwin AnlytcPhil@aol.com```
