Answer

$x$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: $\log_b{x}=y \longrightarrow b^y=x$ Let $\log_b{b^x} = y$ Use the rule above to obtain: $\log_b{b^x}=y \longrightarrow b^y=b^x$ Use the rule $a^m=a^n \longrightarrow m=n$ to obtain: $b^y=b^x \longrightarrow y = x$ Thus, the missing expression in the given statement is: $x$
