Let r(x)=P(x)Q(x) is a rational function
The cut point of the function r(x) are the values of the x at which either
P(x)=0 or Q(x)=0
To find the rational inequality use the test points between the successive cut points to find the interval that satisfies the inequality

How does 7 log ( 8 x ) = 7 ln 8 x
I was working on some math homework with a program called scientific notebook. I was check that
I was writing something correctly.
The original equation is ( log ( x 4 ) + log ( x 5 ) ) / log ( 8 x ) = 7
I then converted it to log ( x ( 4 + 5 ) ) = 7 log ( 8 x )
I was expecting to get log ( ( 8 x ) 7 ) when I entered the 7 log ( 8 x ) into the program to evaluate. Can someone please explain this to me?
