# How would you do this maths question?Watch

#1
The variables x and y and the constants a and b are real and positive. The variables x and y are related.

A graph of log y against log x is drawn.

For which one of the following relationships will this graph be a straight line?

1) y^6=a^x
2) y=ab^x
3) y^2=a + x^b
4) y=ax^b
5) y^x=a^b

Thanks a lot

Make log(y) the subject by taking the log of both sides.

So for a it would be and this is not of the form so the answer is not a.

Do this for the rest and see which are of the form
