Hi Keith;
log √x + log x11 - log x
log x1/2 + log x11 - log x
Should we begin with the addition or subtraction?
The algebraic order of operations is...
Parentheses

Aunt Sally...addition before subtraction.
log x1/2 + log x11 -log x
Let's apply the principle...
log ab=log a + log b
log x[(1/2)+(11)]- log x
We will add (1/2) + 11...
log x11 1/2- log x
Let's apply the principle...
log a/b=log a - log b
Let's also rewrite log x to log x1 to eliminate any confusion.
log x11 1/2- log x1
log (x11 1/2)/x1
We will subtract...(11 1/2 - 1)
log x10 1/2
10 1/2 log x

 Log √X + Log X11 - logX =
 
 
   Log ( √X . X11 / X)  = log ( X 10  . √X ) 
 
                                 = log X ^ (21/2)= log  √(X^21 )
