    Log of X to the base a = Log of X to the base b / log of a to the base b

    Hmm ok so then how can log x to the base 9 equal to 2?

    how did you know 1/6 is shaded in?
    and
    how did you know thetha = pi-2/3pi
    1/6 is implied by the answer and Pi - 2/3 pi is because we are using radians to find the angle and seeming as all of the angles are equal to each other when divided by 3 i knew i had to use this.

    to convert this into a radians degree

    Have you got the mark scheme to this because I'd like to see if the following is right or wrong
    X = 15, 25, 75, 85, 135, 145

    Hey! I got the same answers as the person above: 15, 55, 135, 175

    Have you got your working out? If you show me it, I could try and point out where you may have gone wrong?

    Just worked out I think I can do binomials and factor theorem stuff, that rules two things out 😂 good luck you will be fine! Trust me I think my friend has the same

    Let theta be 3x-15
    Sintheta = 1/2
    I drew the graph up until 450
    Drew horizontal line from 1/2
    Theta = 30, 60, 210, 240, 390, 420
    3x-15 = The above
    x = 15, 25, 75, 85, 135, 145 and anymore values would lie out of range 0<x<180

    Does anyone here know a good place to revise logs? i'm good with most of C2 but I loose so many marks from messing up log questions.

    go onto exam solutions, watch his videos on how to solve log questions, do the exam questions under that heading.

    I think I can see where you've gone wrong. Basically what you should do is:

    sin(3n-15) = 0.5
    therefore 3n-15 = sin^-1(0.5)
    therefore 3n-15 = 30 (this is your first value)
    Draw CAST diagram...and since the sin value is positive, the value will be in first and second quadrant (top right and top left). So the angle will be 30, and 180-30 which is 150.

    So 3n-15 = 30, 150...you then add 360 to both of these to get 390, 510, and then add 360 to those 2 to get 750, 870 (do this just incase the final values are in range)

    so 3n-15 = 30,150,390,510,750, 870
    therefore 3n = 45,465,405,525,675,885
    therefore n = 15,55,135,175 (to fit that range of 0 to 180)

    I hope that made sense! It's hard to type it all out, on paper it's a lot shorter

    I've stopped using cast diagrams for various reasons. Thanks, that did help .
