could you show the working out if you know the answer
7. That definitely won't come up

You just take the log of both sides, rearrange, and use simultaneous equations

substituting values from the graph into the equation:
5 = p*q
320 = p*q^4

If you multiply the first equation by q^3 you will get the second equation.
Therefore, 320/5 = q^3
q^3 = 64

the cubed root of 64 is 4, so q = 4.

substituting this back into the first equation:

5 = p * 4
p = 1.25

You can then check these values with the second equation to make sure
