 Question 116270: Bear with me I'm not sure how to enter certain symbols:( Sorry.) Expand as much as possible and evaluate: log3(base) then radicand symbol (index is 4) and x^5 y^4/81 is inside the radicand symbol. I noticed the two equations inside the radicand symbol were divided so I know this means I have to write it as subtraction. log3(x^5y^4)^1/4-log3 (81)1/4 log3 (x^5/4 y^4/4) - 1/4 log3 (81)? 5/4 log3 X + 4/4 log3 Y - 9/4?

 Question 116316: Suppose that the number of cars, C, on 1st Avenue in a city over a period of time t, in months, is graphed on a rectangular coordinate system where time is on the horizontal axis. Suppose that the number of cars driven on 1st Aveue can be modeled by an exponential function, C=p*a^t where p is the number of cars on the road on the first day recorded. If you commuted to work each day along 1st Avenue, would you prefer that the value of t be between 0 and 1 or larger than 1? Explain your reasoning. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57214)
