Solve for x: log(x-2)+ log x = log 3 I just don't do how to put all togther. Thank you!!!!!Answer by solver91311(16868)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The sum of the logs is the log of the product: So: If two logs to the same base (here, understood base 10) are equal then their arguments must be equal: Hence: Just solve your quadratic. Check BOTH roots for extraneous values considering the domain of the log function. John
