Seems basically correct, assuming the first "x" in your a x (x^k) is supposed to be a multiplication symbol, not a variable. You could divide through by 3 to have
.. log(y) = (k/3)*log(x) +log(a)/3
.. Y = log(y)
.. m = k/3
.. X = log(x)
.. c = log(a)/3

We usually use an asterisk (*) or raised dot (• or ·) or actual multiplication symbol (×) if a multiplication symbol is needed. (Be aware there are a couple of posters on here who use a raised dot for a decimal point and a period for a multiplication symbol: 6.2•3 = 13•8 in those terms, where most of us would interpret that as 18.6.)
