 Question 354512: Solve for x: log 2,(log 5,(x-1)) = 1 Thank you for your help! I appreciate it!Answer by jsmallt9(3296)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! For an equation of this form, log(expression) = expression, and the variable in the argument of the log, you want to rewrite the equation in exponential form. In general is equivalent to . So your equation is equivalent to: which simplifies to: We still have an equation of the form, log(expression) = expression, so we will repeat the procedure of rewriting it in exponential form: which simplifies to: Solving this simple equation gives us:
