Condensing Logarithms :
When evaluating logarithmic equations, we can use methods for condensing logarithms in order to rewrite multiple logarithmic terms into one. Condensing logarithms can be a useful tool for the simplification of logarithmic terms. When condensing logarithms we use the rules of logarithms, including the product rule, the quotient rule and the power rule.
