 Question 527241: Contract the expressions. That is, use the properties of logarithms to write each expression as a single logarithm with a coefficient of 1. ln (3) - 2 ln (4) + ln (8) ln (3) - 2 ln (4+8) ln *3) - 2 (ln (4) +ln (8) Answer by stanbon(57347)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!write each expression as a single logarithm with a coefficient of 1. ln (3) - 2 ln (4) + ln (8) = ln[3*8/4^2] = ln[24/16] = ln(3/2) ---------------------------------------------- ln (3) - 2 ln (4+8) = ln[3/12^2] = ln[3/144] -------------------------------- ln (3) - 2 ln (4) +ln (8) = ln[3*8/4^2] = ln[24/16] ========================================================= Cheers, Stan H.
