Work Step by Step

RECALL: The product rule for logarithms: $\log_a{bc} = \log_a{b} + \log_a{c}$ Use the product rule to obtain: $\log_7{(7x)} \\= \log_7{(7 \cdot x)} \\= \log_7{7} + \log_7{x}$ Note that for all real numbers within its domain, $\log_a{a}=1$. This means that $\log_7{7} = 1$. Thus, $\log_7{7} + \log_7{x}= 1 + \log_7{x}$
