$\log_{x}\left(4\right)=2$

Learn how to solve logarithmic equations problems step by step online. Solve the logarithmic equation logx(100)-logx(25)=2. The difference of two logarithms of equal base b is equal to the logarithm of the quotient: \log_b(x)-\log_b(y)=\log_b\left(\frac{x}{y}\right). Change the logarithm to base x applying the change of base formula for logarithms: \log_b(a)=\frac{\log_x(a)}{\log_x(b)}. If the argument of the logarithm (inside the parenthesis) and the base are equal, then the logarithm equals 1. Take the reciprocal of both sides of the equation.

##  Final answer to the problem

$x=2$
