# How do you solve #log_2(x/2)=5#?

##### 2 Answers

We raise both sides of our equation to be the exponent of a base of

#### Explanation:

The first thing that we want to do is get rid of the logarithm on the left hand side of the equation. To do this, we want to perform an "anti-log" which is just a power. The inverse of a log function is the power of the same base, i.e.:

so in our case, we need to raise both sides of the equation to the exponent of

which simplifies to

now we can multiply both sides by

#### Explanation:

BY definition: if

In this case we have:
