This lesson explains the basic properties of logarithms and shows you the formulas for the rules. It also shows why these properties exist and where they come from. These rules / properties are then used to simplify 9 logarithmic expressions. Make sure to watch the other videos in this series if you do not understand anything in this lesson. The properties make the problems in this lesson relatively simple.
