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

    Well the number you put above is not the exact answer

    That is call an appoximation

    how do get an exact number?

    So I assume you did the setup right because you got the approximation to the correct answer

    This is the setup you chose? \[\frac{1}{c}=\frac{\ln(8)-\ln(1)}{8-1}\]

    We know ln(1) =? and 8-1=? So can you tell me what 1/c= Don't use your calculator

    and then f'(c) = 1/c then solve for c

    ln 1 = 0 8-1= 7

    Ok we have \[\frac{1}{c}=\frac{\ln(8)-0}{7}\] Do you know how to solve this for c?

    ln 8/ 7 = 1/c c= 7/ln8
