I need to rewrite the answer b) such that:

`log (x/root(3)(1-x)) = log x - (1/3)log(1-x)`

a) You need to use the quotient law to convert the logarithm of quotient in a difference of two logarithms such that:

`log_a (x^2/(yz^3)) = log_a x^2 - log_a (yz^3)`

You need to convert the logarithm of product in a sum of two logarithms such that:

`log_a (yz^3) = log_a y + log_a (z^3)`

You need to use exponent law to write `log_a x^2` and `log_a (z^3) ` such that:

`log_a (x^2/(yz^3)) = 2log_a x -log_a y - 3log_a z`

**Hence, evaluating `log_a (x^2/(yz^3))` yields `log_a (x^2/(yz^3)) = 2log_a x - log_a y - 3log_a z` .**

b) You need to use the quotient law to convert the logarithm of quotient in a difference of two logarithms such that:

`log x/(root(3)(1-x)) = log x - log (root(3)(1-x))`

You need to remember that `(root(3)(1-x)) = (1-x)^(1/3)`

`log x/(root(3)(1-x)) = log x - log (1-x)^(1/3)`

`log x/(root(3)(1-x)) = log x - (1/3)*log (1-x)`

**Hence, evaluating`log x/(root(3)(1-x)) ` yields `log x/(root(3)(1-x)) = log x - (1/3)*log (1-x).` **
