1. How do you make T the subject in this equation?

ln2 + (T-10)lnp = Tlnq

How do you make T the subject in this equation?

ln2 + (T-10)lnp = Tlnq
First put evverything involving T one one side, so:

You can simplify using the addition/subtractin rules for logarithms, i.e: . Then divide by the coefficient of to get it alone.

ln2 + (T-10)lnp = Tlnq
Next step: ln2 + T*lnp - 10*lnp = Tlnq
then, T*lnq + T*lnp = ln2 + 10*lnp
so, T*ln(q/p) = -ln(10^p/2)
finally, T= -ln(10^p/2) / ln(q/p)

Bolded the incorrect bits.

Oh, that's disgusting.

That's what comes from trying to beat you, that one addicted, self-declared genius who dwells here, day and night.
