 Question 5387: I am sending two questions, because I think they are very similar, although I was able to solve only the first one, but in a somewhat unsatisfactory way: 1) 2) My goal would be to solve these inequalities purely by algebraic manipulation. I examined both questions with Mathematica 4 and graphed them with Winplot (Peanut)and both confirm the answers, that by coincidence are the same for the two questions. I would very much appreciate some help here. Thanks Andreas Click here to see answer by longjonsilver(2297)

 Question 5515: Jon Thanks for the quick reply on my question (# 5387) Unfortunately, because this text screen "went berserk" when I posed my question I was unable to relate all what I had done and had to erase my explanations and simplify my question The answer to both problems is: true for x between zero and one and x greater/equal to two The algebra manipulation you made is all right but, as you can see from the answer(s), only part of the solution I was looking for the sistematics to find the above answer by purely manipulating algebra and had no success, why I asked you Both questions have the same answer and in both cases I verified them by other means, like graphing and mathematica 4 Look forward to be hearing from you again Thanks Andreas Click here to see answer by longjonsilver(2297)

 Question 5994: This equation is giving me issues. log(base2)(x-6)+log(base2)(x-4)-log(base2)x = 2 Solve for x. Reject any value of x that produces the logarithm of a negative number or 0. What I've done: log(base2)(x-6)(x-4)-log(base2)x = 2 log(base2)(x-6)(x-4)/x = 2 (x-6)(x-4)/x = 2^2 = 4 4 = (x-6)(x-4)/x There is where I am stuck. Some help on this would be great. Thanks.
