Hi Mr. G. Some of us have a quick question from the textbook review. #7. d) on page 510 reads: Express the following as a single log: 2 log 3 + 4 log 2. So at first glance this seems like we should be able to bring the coefficients up and get log 3 ^ 2 + log 2 ^ 4, which we can then use the Log Product law to turn into (skipping some steps): log144. However, the textbook says the answer is log128. Is this textbook error or are we doing something wrong? No video necessary by the way

Yes, your answer is the correct one. Not sure where the book's answer came from!
