Answer:

#log_2((t^3*v^4)/root(3)u)#

Explanation:

As bases are common and we can condense

#3log_2t-1/3log_2u+4log_2v#, using following identities

#alog_xb=log_xb^a#, #1/alog_xb=log_xb^(1/a)=log_xroot(a)b#

#log_xp+log_xq=log_xpq# and

#log_xp-log_xq=log_x(p/q)#.

Hence, #3log_2t-1/3log_2u+4log_2v#

= #log_2t^3-log_2root(3)u+log_2v^4#

= #log_2((t^3*v^4)/root(3)u)#
