CHANGING THE BASE OF A LOGARITHM - Problem 3

Let a, b, and x be positive real numbers such that neither a nor b equals 1 (remember x must be greater than 0). Then tex2html_wrap_inline28 can be converted to the base b by the formula tex2html_wrap_inline30 .

Problem 3: Find tex2html_wrap_inline32 .

Answer: The empty set. There is no solution.

Solution: By the definition of logarithms, the base must be greater than zero.
