I ask because the first expression is much more difficult to solve than the second. Most logarithm problems posted here are like the second expression. What is log8 5? log(8)*5 log(85) ? If the last one is correct, then try using English to describe it, For example: "base 8 logarithm of 5" Please repost your question.
