log49 = ?

Just remember 23=8
and log28 = 3
3. It is indeed. Take logs of both sides

so xlog4=log9

Start with taking logs of both sides and then see if you can rearrange to get x=
5. yes it is

take logs of both sides

use the rule log(ab) = blog(a)

i get 1.584962501

to 3dp is it: 1.585

1.585 is that the answer for x
8. (Original post by dongonaeatu)
1.585 is that the answer for x
Yep

Also without a calculator you know 4^1 = 4 and 4^2 = 16 so x is going to be between 1 and 2 so 1.585 sounds sensible. A useful check if you don't have a calculator

For the most part, yes

I expect that to become your sig ...

Like TenOfThem said, for the most part yes, turning points are when you have minimums and maximums where the gradient changes at the stationary point, however this isn't always the case such as points of inflection.

You're a bit late to the party. Also, 3dp.

yeah.
i thought it said 3sf
17. (Original post by nm786)
yeah.
i thought it said 3sf
even if it was 3 significant figures wouldn't it be 1.59 instead of 1.58
18. (Original post by nm786)
yeah.
i thought it said 3sf
Haha sneaky edit. I'm a chronic misreader so I suppose I can't really talk

Like in C2 where I ended up losing out on full UMS because of it

no it would be 1.58 as there is a 4 after it and 4 is less than 5,
20. (Original post by zed963)

Nope, it's 1.58496...... so 3sf = 1.58 and 3dp = 1.585.
