Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to convert bases?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay logarithms work the following way: any number can be expressed as another number to some power For example 13 can be expressed as 10 to the power 1.114

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here, 10 is called the base.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so log10 13 = 1.114 This means that logarithm of 13 to the base 10 is 1.114

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.013 can also be expressed as 2 to the power 3.7004. which means log 2 13 = 3.7004

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would log9 be converted to 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so log9 27 = ? the ? is the power to which you have to raise 9 in order to get 27. http://www.sosmath.com/algebra/logs/log4/log43/log43.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0following the logic of that link, we can say that log9 27 = log3 27/ log3 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, what is log3 27?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0answer my question. what is log3 27?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0explain it in plain english for now.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, read what I posted earlier. Don't simply dab at answers. Understand the logic behind logs and you wont ever have any more problems with it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its harrd. okay, we would put log3/log3 27?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you understand the meaning of logs? I posted it earlier. READ through it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is 4 to the power 2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya its hard im not a smart cookie like you. i dont no where you got the decimals from your example???!!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. I am trying to explain it to you. what is 4 squared? what we mean by 4 raised to the power 2 is 4 squared.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yah okay thats simple

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so give me the answer. what is 4 raised to the power 2?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, what is the value of 4^2? 4^2 = 4*4 right? what is 4*4?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just give me the number. Use your calculator.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right. okay great!. what is 4 raised to the power 3?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know my powers mister

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats good to know. I am asking the value of 4^3.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i multiplyed it wrong. sorry

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyway, the point is this. what if you wanted to express a number between 16 and 64 as a power of 4? what happens then?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find the number in the middle?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want you to express the number 32 as a power of 4. Can you do it?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what if I wanted 17 as a power of 4, or 18?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the value of log base 5 512

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no no. that is 4 times 8, I want you to express 32 as a power of 4. You can express 16 as the 2nd power of 4 and 64 as the 3rd power of 4. what about 17, 18 , 19 and so on?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cant? it would be in a decimal rite?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exactly! you are on the right track margaret! very well done!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0conditions are given like log 2 = 0.3010 and log 3= 0.4771......so whats the value of log base 5 512?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. so that is where we use logarithms. so 4 should be raised to a power between 2 and 3 in order to get 32 right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sathiprakash if you have a separate problem please post it elsewhere. you are confusing the learning process here.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay margaret, now, so we know that 4^2 is 16 and 4^3 is 64. so to express 32 as a power of 4, we know that the answer must lie between 2 and 3. correct?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you have a calculator, margaret?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so it would turn into a decimal

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay doesnt matter. use google. it has a calculator built in. paste this exactly. 4^2.5

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just copy paste that in google.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! so you see? any number can be expressed as a power of 4!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0even my problem log9 27

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we call 4 the base. similarly in your problem, the base is 9.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we need to find what power we need to raise 9 to get 27.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it will convert to 3

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, so what we do is, we convert bases, that is a logarithmic property. I pasted that link earlier. so log9 27 = log3 27/log3 9

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what power do you need to raise 3 to get 27? do you know?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. 3^3 = 3*3*3 correct?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is 3 times 3 times 3?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! so what is log3 27? In other words, what power do you need to raise 3 in order to get 27?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very good! so then by the same logic, what is log3 9?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, understand what log3 9 means. It means what power do you need to raise 3 to get 9. that is what log3 9 means.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, try again. what does log3 9?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is log3 27 / log3 9?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good. so your answer is 1.5. now go ahead and check your answer. see if 9^1.5 is 27

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0go on, type it in google.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so log9 27 = 1.5 in english, it means that logarithm to the base 9 of 27 is 1.5 in other words. raise 9 to the power 1.5 to get 27.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are welcome. I hope you understood the meaning behind logs and powers and bases.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, I want you to do a little exercise. just pick a number. say 7. let 7 be your base. raise 7 to 1.2, 1.3,1.4, 2.54444 etc and see what numbers you get in google. You will see that any number can be expressed as a power of 7. not just integers, even fractions can be expressed as powers of 7.
