If ln a = 2 and ln b = 3 find the value of the equation ln (a^2/b^3).

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Given that :

ln a = 2

ln b = 3

We need to find the values of ln a^2/b^3

We will use the logarithm properties to solve.

We know that ln a/b = ln a - ln b

Then we will simplify:

ln a^2/b^3 = ln a^2 - ln b^3

Now we also know that ln x^a = a*ln x

==> ln a^2 - ln b^3 = 2*ln a - 3*ln b

Now we will substitute with the value of ln a and ln b

==> ln (a^2/b^3) = 2*2 - 3*3 = 4- 9= -5

**Then the value of ln (a^2/b^3) = -5.**
