In order to condense a log and an integer into a single log, you must set yourself up to use either the quotient or product rules- that is, you want a sum or difference of two logs with the same base. Rewrite the integer as a log with the same base as the other term. Your final result may use parentheses to more clearly show what product or quotient is the input into the log function.
