y = log36(6)

= log6(6) / log6(36)

= log6(6) / (2log6(6))

= 1/2

Answer: y = 1/2

By definition, a log is the power to which the base must be raised to equal the operand.

Here you have log(base 36)6 = y

Therefore you need to find y as follows

36^y = 6

As was noted before by the other answerers, the square root of 36, or stated otherwise sqrt(36), equals 6.

sqrt(36) = 6

or written another way

36^1/2 = 6

So we find that y is 1/2

That is, 1/2 is the power to which the base (36) must be raised to equal 6.

36^y = 6

6^(2y) = 6^1

2y = 1

y = 0.5
