# How do you solve #log_10(x+6) + log_10(3x-2)=2#?

##### 1 Answer

I have taken this to a point where you should be able to take over and complete the calculation. The final format is that of a quadratic.

#### Explanation:

The left hand side (LHS) is stating that you should take logs of 2 numbers. The RHS is just giving a value. So the RHS is the value you get after taking a log.

So before we start we need to ask the question; what is

Rewrite the given question as:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For logs to be added it means that the source is multiplied so we have:

Consider the LHS only

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rewrite equation (1) as

Now you just multiply out the brackets and put it into standard form!

Have a go at finishing that bit.
