Logarithms are exponents. Remember the sum of the logs is the log of the product: If the base is not specified, the base is assumed to be 10, hence using the definition of logarithms from above: Anything raised to the 1 power is just that thing, hence: Put the quadratic into standard form and solve. Hint: it factors. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
