Properties of Logarithms Section 8.5

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: 1.How to use the properties of logarithms to simplify and evaluate expressions.

Some Questions How do you simplify the following:

So ….. Remember that logarithms are another way to write exponents. The Properties of Logarithms are based on the properties of exponents – Product Property: Quotient Property: Power Property:
