Solving a log equation for two variables
Goal is to find both β and ω. I already have the answer here, but I'm confused as to how to get it.
log 6 250 log β 2 = 3 log β ω
This is what I did:
log 6 250 = log β ω 3 + log β 2
log 6 250 = log β 2 ω 3
log 250 log 6 = log 2 ω 3 log β
And I am stuck here. The answer states that ω = 5 and β = 6, which after entering it, is correct, but I don't know how it got to that point.
Looking directly at the last part I ended up with, it seems like you're supposed to equate the tops to one another and bottoms to one another, which would get you the answer, but with another example, that clearly does not work:
log 64 log 4 = log 27 log 3
64 27 , 4 3
How would one solve this problem, and is the path I went correct?

From:
log β ( 2 w 3 ) = log 6 ( 250 ), we can set β = 6 since we simply want to find a solution and not all solutions.
Equating 2 w 3 = 250 lets us solve for a unique w.

Changing base of a logarithm by taking a square root from base?
From my homework I found
log 9 x = log 3 x
and besides that an explanation that to this was done by taking a square root of the base. I fail to grasp this completely. Should I need to turn log 9 x into base 3, I'd do something like
log 9 x = log 3 x log 3 9 = log 3 x log 3 3 2 = log 3 x 2
but this is a far cry from what I've given as being the correct answer.
Substituting some values to x and playing with my calculator I can see that the answer given as correct is correct whereas my attempt fails to yield the correct answer.
Now the question is, what are correct steps to derive log 3 x from log 9 x ? How and why am I allowed to take a square root of the base and the exponent?

Domain of definition of the function
I was going through some questions of Relations and Functions and now I am stuck to one. Question says
Question: Domain of definition of the function
f ( x ) = 9 9 x 2 + log 10 ( x 3 x )
is?
Till yet I know that the denominator of first term (i.e. 9 9 x 2 ) will be non-zero. So I figured,
9 x 2 0
x ± 3
And from second term (i.e. log 10 x 3 x), we know that the term inside the logarithm can never be less than or equal to zero. So,
log 10 ( x 3 x )
x 3 x > 0
( x 1 ) x ( x + 1 ) > 0
From here I know that if x 1 is negative when x < 1 and positive when x > 1. x + 1 is negative when x < 1 and positive when x > 1. But I am still not getting the domain in a specific interval.
I seriously need help in this.
Thanks in advance

Solving logarithmic equations including x
Let
log 3 ( x 2 ) = 6 x
It's obvious drawing the graphs of the two functions that the only solution is x = 5. But this is not really a proof, rather than observation.
How do you prove it algebraically?

Given that log 9 p = log 12 q = log 16 ( p + q ) find the value of q / p
This is not homework, it's just a brain teaser which I can't solve, just some hints should be sufficient, I know that from this we get:
( 1 / 4 ) log 2 ( p + q ) = ( 1 / 2 ) log 3 p = log 3 q 1 + 2 log 3 2
now I'd like to combine these quantities in some way so I can see the value of q / p from this, but I can't seem to be able to figure it out.
