This problem is a checkpoint for rewriting expressions with and solving equations with logarithms. It will be referred to as Checkpoint 10. Homework Help ✎
In parts (a) through (b), rewrite each expression as a single logarithm. In parts (c) through (f), solve each equation.
log2(30x) − log2(6)
2 log3(x) + log3(5)
log7(3x − 2) = 2
log(2x + 1) = −1
log5(3y) + log5(9) = log5(405)
log(x) + log(x + 21) = 2
