$\log_3{\left(\dfrac{u^2}{v} \right)}$

#### Work Step by Step

Recall: $\log_a M^r = r \log_a M$ Use the rule above to obtain: $2 \log_3 u = \log_3 u^2$ Thus, $2 \log_3 u -\log_3 v = \log_3 u^2 - \log_3 v$ With $\log_a(\dfrac{M}{N}) = \log_a M-\log_a N$, then: $2 \log_3 u -\log_3 v = \boxed{\log_3 \left(\dfrac{u^2}{v} \right)}$
