the log of a given base of a number is the power to which the base is taken to give that number. in this case the base is 2 and 2^6 = 64 So log to base 2 of 64 = 6.

I cant do do number 4 as I dont know exactly how the magnitude of an earthquake is defined. If it were a simple proportional relationship the answer would be 6.7 / 5.1 but none of the options are close to that..

yep  they are logs to the base 10 by the look of it so we have: 10^6.7 / 10 ^ 5.1 = 10^(6.7  5.1) = 10^1.6
