log3(5x-3)-log3(x+3)=1

and

logx(9x+10)=2

and

[(256^1/4)+(log5 625)+(2x^0)]

The first step will be to combine the subtracted logs into one log containing a division, by applying the appropriate

Once you have "log, base three, of (a rational expression)", convert this to the equivalent

Then

I'm afraid I don't know what they want you to do with a "base x" log...?

This one cannot be "solved", because it isn't an equation: this is no "equals" sign in this. Are you perhaps supposed to "evaluate"...?

i'm suppose to solve for x in all of them

As mentioned previously, it is not possible to "solve" the third exercise, since it is not an equation. So please get corrected instructions from your teacher.

As for the first two, you've been given the steps and been provided with lessons for the review of any bits on which you may be "fuzzy". What progress have you made?

Please be complete. Thank you!

I'll give you a little hint...the solution to both of these are positive integers. the first one should be easy to solve for and the second is a little trickier...but you can still solve for it. even if it was you could still solve
