The question is "Write as the sum or difference of logarithms. Simplify, if possible." And I'm not sure if it's simplified enough or did I used the right steps. Please help.

romanqwertyonlog (ab)^2going from the 2nd line to the 3rd line, which you can't do like that. (ab)^2 = a^2 * b^2Savantonlog(a*(ab)^1/3)/(ab)^2 = log(a*(ab)^-2/3)

multiplicative logs

log(a*(ab)^-2/3) = Log(a) + Log(ab^-2/3)

Power rule for logs

Log(a) + Log(ab^-2/3) =

Log(a) - 2/3*Log(ab)Dunadan019onlog(ab) = log(a) + log(b)

log(a/b) = log(a) - log(b)

log(a^b) = b * log(a)
