$2 \ln x+\frac{1}{2} \ln (1-x)$

#### Work Step by Step

Given: $\quad \quad \ln \left(x^{2} \sqrt{1-x}\right)$ Use the rule $\ln A B=\ln A+\ln B$ to obtain: \begin{align*} \ln\left(x^{2} \sqrt{1-x}\right)&=\ln x^{2}+\ln \sqrt{1-x}\\ &=\ln x^{2}+\ln (1-x)^{1 / 2} \end{align*} Using the rule $\quad\ln a^{m}=m \ln a$ gives: $$\ln\left(x^{2} \sqrt{1-x}\right)=2 \ln x+\frac{1}{2} \ln (1-x)$$
