(a). Use the rules that for positive $x$ and $y$ and any logarithmic base, $$\log(x) + \log(y) = \log(xy)\,\text{ and }\log(x^3) = 3\log(x).$$ (b). Multiply the numerator and denominator by 3^16. Multiplying powers of the same integer is done by adding the exponents. Is that sufficient help?

Also, for log 0.001, just do the mental math: 10 to the power of what will result in 0.001?
