p is the centre of the circle (x-1)^2 + (y+4)^2 = 81, q is the centre of the circle (x+3)^2 +y^2 = 36. find the exact distance between the points p and q.

thanks.

What are the coordinates of the respective centres?

i got p = (1, -4) q= (-3,0) and then i put it into the formula and got root 32

Yep, looks right. You could simplify if you want, but it's all good Posted from TSR Mobile

What is it you need help with, you seem to have solved the question? Root 32 could be simplified to 4 root 2.

i solved that one but im having difficulty with : solve the equation 2log5x - log53x = 1

i got up until log5 (x/3) =1 but i dont know what to do next 0

how?? Log5(x)=2 means that x=5^2

Use a similar principle

2log5(x) - log5(3x) = 1 ===> log5(x^2) - log5(3x) = 1

log5(x^2/3x) = 1

5^1 = x^2/3x

Therefore 5 = x^2/3x

You should be able to solve it from there. 0

so.. log5x = 1 would turn to 5^1

then.. x/3 = 5
so x = 15?
