Given: 2logx = 2 +log25
log100 = 2 [Since, log100 = log102 = 2log10 =2]
2logx = log100 +log25
Using power law of logarithms, 2log(x) = log(x2)
log(x2) = log(25) + log(100)

Using sum rule for logarithms, log(25) + log(100) = log(25x100):
log(x2) = log(2500)

Removing all logarithms (by raising everything to the power of 10):
x2= 2500
Or, x = +/- 50

Since 2log(-50) doesn't exist, therefore x = +50

log3 81 = log81/log3 [Using the change of base rule for logarithms]
= log 34/log3
= 4log3/log3 [Using power law of ...
