Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[log_5x=3\]Is that the equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[log_ab=x\] OK, this means, the number you raise a to in order to obtain x is b. so \[a^x = b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would 35 be rounded to the hundredth? 35.000?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually, no, you need one less 0. Using the decimal system, the values to the right of the decimal are fractional amounts with respect the base for the system, which is 10 here. So the first place would be \[10^{1}\] which is 1/10, the second place is \[10^{2}\] which is \[\frac{1}{10^2}=\frac{1}{100}\] , this that is the "hundredths" place

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's actually kind of cool, you use any number as the base. So if you have 123.456, then you have \[1*10^3 + 2*10^1 + 2*10^0 + 4*10^{1} + 5*10^{2} + 6*10^{3}\]
