Answer:

# 3/2*a+1/2*b+1/2log5#.

Explanation:

Using the Usual Rules of #log#,

#log(sqrt60sqrt2)=logsqrt60+logsqrt2#

#=1/2log60+1/2log2#,

#=1/2log(2^2*3*5)+1/2log2#,

#=1/2[log2^2+log3+log5]+1/2log2#,

#=1/2[2log2+log3+log5]+1/2log2#,

#=(log2+1/2log2)+1/2log3+1/2log5#,

#=3/2log2+1/2log3+1/2log5#,

# rArr log(sqrt60sqrt2)=3/2*a+1/2*b+1/2log5#.
