To solve ( (2 - x)\log_4 = (5 - x)\log_2 ):

- Apply the property of logarithms: ( \log_a(b) = \frac{\log_c(b)}{\log_c(a)} ).
- Rewrite the equation as ( \frac{\log(2 - x)}{\log(4)} = \frac{\log(5 - x)}{\log(2)} ).
- Cross-multiply to eliminate the denominators: ( \log(2 - x) \cdot \log(2) = \log(5 - x) \cdot \log(4) ).
- Apply the property ( \log_a(b) = \log_a(c) ) if and only if ( b = c ).
- Solve the resulting equation ( \log(2 - x) \cdot \log(2) = \log(5 - x) \cdot \log(4) ) for ( x ).

Therefore, by solving the equation resulting from step 5, you can find the value(s) of ( x ) that satisfy the original equation ( (2 - x)\log_4 = (5 - x)\log_2 ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
