If 36=(+6)(+6)=(6)(6)
Then 36=|36|=±6
Usually 6 is answer.
But when you have an equation is needed to accept both results.

In general notation, a= the positive (+) square root and a= the negative (-) square root. So, in the instant case, 36=6 and 36=6.

Prove that if e<y<x then xy<yx
My try:
I tried to use Taylor's theorem:
yxxy=exlnyeylnx=1+xlny+o(xlny)1ylnxo(ylnx)=
=lnyxlnxy+o(xlny)o(ylnx)=lnyxxy+o(xlny)o(ylnx)
Hovewer I have a problem to show that yxxy>0 because I can't say that lnyxxy>0 because then I use with theses.
Have you some idea?

Question about basic exponential/logarithm properties
Solve for k:
e k / 2 = a
Solution:
e 2 k = a
k / 2 = l n a
k = 2 l n a
= l n a 2
My question is: why does 2 l n a = l n a 2 ? Why can you transfer the 2 to be an exponent of a?

Find all a such that lim x ( x + a x a ) x = e
Saw this problem and I thought I'd take a shot at it:
Find all a such that
lim x ( x + a x a ) x = e .

Show (logn)(logn)=2(logn)(log(logn))
I am having difficulty understanding how this follows.
(logn)(logn)=2(logn)(log(logn))=nloglogn
Which logarithmic identities are used to go through each equality?
e.g. how do you first go from
(logn)(logn)=2(logn)(log(logn))
and then to
2(logn)(log(logn))=nloglogn
(The log base must be 2 or else this equality won't hold)
