log 5 (3x) - log 5 (15) = 1

We know that log a - log b = log (a/b)

==> log 5 (3x/15) = 1

==> log 5 (x/5) = 1\

But log 5 (5) = 1

==> log 5 (x/5) = log 5 (5)

==> X/5 = 5

==> **X = 25**

Given:

log5 (3x) - log5 (15) = 1

Applying the formula:

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

the above equation becomes:

log5 (3x/15) = 1

==> log5 (x/5) = 1

We know:

log5 (5) = 1

Therefore:

og5 (x/5) = log5 (5)

Therefore:

x/5 = 5

==> x = 5*5 = 25

Answer:

x = 25
