Question:
$\frac{1}{{{{\log }_2}100}} - \frac{1}{{{{\log }_4}100}} + \frac{1}{{{{\log }_5}100}} - \frac{1}{{{{\log }_{10}}100}} + \frac{1}{{{{\log }_{20}}100}} - \frac{1}{{{{\log }_{25}}100}} + \frac{1}{{{{\log }_{50}}100}} = ?$

 1/2 0 10 −4

We know that $\frac{1}{{lo{g_a}b}}$ = $\frac{{lo{g_x}a}}{{lo{g_x}b}}$

Therefore, we can say that $\frac{1}{{lo{g_2}100}}$ = $\frac{{lo{g_{10}}2}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{1}{{lo{g_2}100}} - \frac{1}{{lo{g_4}100}} + \frac{1}{{lo{g_5}100}} - \frac{1}{{lo{g_{10}}100}} + \frac{1}{{lo{g_{20}}100}} - \frac{1}{{lo{g_{25}}100}} + \frac{1}{{lo{g_{50}}100}}$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{{lo{g_{10}}2}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$-$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}4}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$+$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}5}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$-$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}10}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$+$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}20}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$-$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}25}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$+$\frac{{lo{g_{10}}50}}{{lo{g_{10}}100}}$

We know that $lo{g_{10}}100 = 2$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{1}{2}*[lo{g_{10}}2 - lo{g_{10}}4 + lo{g_{10}}5 - lo{g_{10}}10 + lo{g_{10}}20 - lo{g_{10}}25 + lo{g_{10}}50]$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{1}{2}*[lo{g_{10}}\frac{{2*5*20*50}}{{4*10*25}}]$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{1}{2}*[lo{g_{10}}10]$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{1}{2}$
