I found my c to be 3.366 but the answer is wrong

yes, i know how to do it..but got it wrong.. don't know why

Does it want an approximation?

it didn't say..so i'm thinking should the answer be an exact number

(Enter your answers as a commaseparated list. If it does not satisfy the hypotheses, enter DNE).

but then i think there is only 1 number c

Well the number you put above is not the exact answer

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
That is call an appoximation

how do get an exact number?

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
So I assume you did the setup right because you got the approximation to the correct answer

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
This is the setup you chose? \[\frac{1}{c}=\frac{\ln(8)\ln(1)}{81}\]

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We know ln(1) =? and 81=? So can you tell me what 1/c= Don't use your calculator

lovekblueBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and then f'(c) = 1/c then solve for c
 one year ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Ok we have \[\frac{1}{c}=\frac{\ln(8)0}{7}\] Do you know how to solve this for c?
 one year ago

lovekblueBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ln 8/ 7 = 1/c c= 7/ln8
