\[log_5x=3\]Is that the equation?

\[log_ab=x\] OK, this means, the number you raise a to in order to obtain x is b. so \[a^x = b\]

what would 35 be rounded to the hundredth? 35.000?

Actually, 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

i just wanted to know what 35 rounded to the nearest hundredth would be

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