Let "a" , "b" , and  "c"  be numbers
 
 
log(a) + log(b) = log(ab)
 
log(a) - log(b) = log(a / b)
 
log(a) + log(b) - log(c) = log[(ab / c)]
 
 
Whenever you see a positive log term, the argument of that log term goes in the numerator.
Whenever you see a negative log term, the argument of that log goes in the denominator.

May I add: log(ax) = x log (a)?
