Given that \( \log_{m}(y) = \log_{m}(a) - \log_{m}(b) - \log_{m}(c)\), find the value of \(y\) in terms of \(a, b\) and/or \(c\).

I assume that you want to write \(y\) in terms of \(a, b, c\). Since \(\log_m{\frac{p}{q}} = \log_m{p}-\log_m{q}\), you will get that \[\log_m{y} = \log_m{\frac{\frac{a}{b}}{c}} = \log_m{\frac{a}{bc}}\Rightarrow y = \frac{a}{bc}\] Kay Xspre · 1 year ago
