# Help with maths C2?? ^^ watch

1. A simple question I know, but I don't understand the answer on the mark scheme (it seems wrong to me)
Given that p=log23 and q=log25, find expressions in terms of p and q for:
a) log245
b) log20.3

Now I can do part a, but the mark scheme says that the answer to part b) is p-q-1
How can this be right?
2. a) 2p +q
b) log23/(5*2) = log23 - log25 - log22
= p-q -1
3. Thanks -feels stupid- , I understand now ^^
