I'm being required to prove the power property of logarithms, but in the same way that my teacher did in our precalc class two weeks ago (which I do not remember), which was by simplifying only a single side of the equation to be equal to the other.
I've been trying to wrap my head around this and have found that it is relatively easy to prove the theorem by either setting the logarithm with the power to equal a variable and changing it to and later from exponential form, and I also managed to make the two sides equal to each other by taking a (my example base) to the power of each side, then simplifying.
I cannot however figure out how I am suppose to proceed when only working on one side of the equation. The hint suggests to use the change of base formula, and I have a suspicion that this involves multiplying exponents together, but I cannot figure out how.
Can someone help me out with this?
