# How do you condense (1/2)log x - 5 log y - log z ?

Jun 25, 2016

$\log {x}^{\frac{1}{2}} / \left({y}^{5} z\right)$

#### Explanation:

Use the power law first:

$\log {x}^{\frac{1}{2}} - \log {y}^{5} - \log z$

If the logs are being subtracted, then the values were being divided.

Write as a log of a single term: $\log {x}^{\frac{1}{2}} / \left({y}^{5} z\right)$
