$\frac{1}{2}$$\ln (x^4+2)$

Work Step by Step

$Expand$ $the$ $expression$: $\ln \sqrt {x^4 + 2}$ Rewrite the square root $\ln (x^4+2)^\frac{1}{2}$ Apply the Third Law of Logarithms $\ln (x^4+2)^\frac{1}{2}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$$\ln (x^4+2)$ There are no Laws of Logarithms for adding/subtracting so we leave it as the answer $\frac{1}{2}$$\ln (x^4+2)$
