Is it possible to make the TInspire apply properties of logarithms in order to rewrite multiple logs as one (the sum) or rewriting one log as multiple logs (the difference)?
I would assume the CAS version would be able to do this but I can't for the life of me figure out how. Is the feature built in the calculator or would you have to program it?

I think the nspire can collapse multiple logs into one (normal behavior), but extracting you'd have to program it yourself. If it is just integer inputs, you can use one of the nspire's factor() commands to factor the number and then manually construct a sum of logs.

Okay to combine multiple logs into one how would i do it?
For example: 5 log base 3(y)  log base 3(x4)

Oh, I just tested it out on my calc and it didn't simplify :
What did work is when I did:
log(3^(5*log(y,3)log(x4,3)),3)
