thank you for your help. as you can see, i'm pretty new to logs could you help me solve this one as well? log10(x) = log10(4) / log10(2) the problem is i don't really get the concept of logs. i've only learnt the 5 basic laws of log and the division of logs is just out of my understanding. could you explain it for me?

Surely one of the rules that you know will justify the equality... log_10(4) = 2*log_10(2) Then the right hand side is just "2". Exponentiate. etc.
