How do you simplify #log_10(10^3x+1)#?

You can't.


That's as simplified as it gets, unless you mean that you want to convert it to exponential form and solve for #x# (in which case you'd come out with something along the lines of #x = (10^y + 1)/10^3#). If that's what you meant, let me know and I can walk through it.

Or, if you want, you can rewrite it as #log_10(1000x + 1)#, but I wouldn't really call that simplifying.

I checked WolframAlpha to be more sure.
And then I checked Symbolab.

Hope this helps.
