Im just a bit confused how you can do question (b)(ii) without a calculator. (the url of the question is below)

https://www.angelfire.com/pro/circlecursor/Maths.tiff

I can work it out with a calculator fine but since it's meant to be for a non-calculator paper Id be a bit screwed. Any help would be appreciated.

Makes you wonder really.

Note: ** is for powers (eg 10**2 is 10 squared)

code:
root(3)
-------
9**3/4


-> root(3) = 3**1/2

log top and bottom, so this equals:

1/2 x log3
----------
3/4 x log9

-> log9 = 2 x log3

now we have:
1/2 x log3
--------------
3/4 x 2 x log3

-> cancel the log3

we have:
1/2
-------
3/4 x 2

which is:

1/2
---
3/2

better known as 1/3
Weeeeeeeeee!

log25 = 2 X log5

Ya, Cantus, me still alive - and around abouts sometimes.

Eeyore - you got that right with the 2xlog5 = log25.

Similarly a x logb = log(b**a)

I/we're coming to OZ later this year. But I'm told we're not coming to Adelaide. Can you make it to some other major city instead Mr Kling? Cos I'd love to hook up...
