 Question 634548: I'm lost - I saw a math tutor today but he got side tracked and I'm just more confused. Here is the problem: Solve the inequality log (base x) 5 < log (base 5) x remember that x>0 and x≠1 rewrite each logarithm in terms of a common base, move both expressions to the same side of the inequality so that everything is being compared with zero. find a common denominator to combine the two expressions. Find the critical values of the combined expression, that is, find the values of x that make the numerator equal 0 and the values of x that make the denominator equal zero, find these values algebraically. I can muddle through some of this but I'm also required to detail out "why" I'm doing each step... I don't know how to describe the how and why in words. Click here to see answer by jsmallt9(3296)

 Question 634580: Hello. I recently got this question and I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me if it's correct: Solve for x in, log(base x)(5 + 3x - x^2) = 2 my solution: x^2 = 5 + 3x - x^2 x^2 + x^2 = 5 + 3x 2x^2 = 5 + 3x 2x^2 - 5 - 3x = 0 2x^2 + 2x - 5x - 5 = 0 2x(x + 1) - 5(x + 1) = 0 (2x - 5)(x + 1) = 0 --------------------------------------------- Therefore x = 5/2 OR x = 1 Is this correct? Thanks in advance. Click here to see answer by ewatrrr(10682)

 Question 634678: The loudness, b, of sound measured in decibals is defined by the equation b = 10 log [I/Io] where "I" is the intensity of the sound and "Io" is the minimum intensity detectable. Show that, if the difference in loudness of two sounds is "d" decibels, the louder sound is 10^d/10 times more intense then quieter sound. Click here to see answer by jsmallt9(3296)
