Found 2 solutions by josmiceli, Earlsdon:Answer by josmiceli(9817)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The main thing to remember is: LOGS ARE EXPONENTS The other main thing is: You have to know how to read this: First of all, it's telling you that is an exponent, since it says "y = log(something)" Then it tells you that when you raise the base to the exponent , the result is Putting all that together: You can also express as The rule for this is to multiply the exponents You can solve this on a calculator, or take the log to the base of both sides ----------------- Actually, and, as I showed, Answer by Earlsdon(6294)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Rewrite this in exponential form:---> Now take the common log (base = 10) of both sides. Use you calculator to find these logs. First apply the power rule for logarithms to the left side. Divide both sides by . Use your calculator to find the logs. ... Rounded to... This does not quite match your answer!
