    i got 2 values for y since it will be a quadratic equation. i basically solved it by substitution since the gave as the what is Y is equal to.
    It was a quadratic equation??

    The ans for the part a wasnt y/2 it was y - 2 and after solving i got 3 for y and 27 for x

    Well either you messed up in part A or I did lol. I probably did cuz I was getting the same y expression in both questions.

    Wasn't a quadratic equation.

    I actually opened up the log so for me log3(x/9)= log3(x) - log3(9) since log3(x)=y and log3(9)= 2 so I got y-2

    Nope, the question said 'hence or otherwise' I chose the otherwise part since I was pretty dubious about my answer to part A. But that might be why I didn't get a quadratic equation. At the end of the day there was only one solution and that was 81.

    That's definitely the correct answer. Why on earth didn't I think of that dammit

    But shouldn't u get a quadratic equation if u choose otherwise cuz it was give 2log3 (x) which becomes log3 (×^2) so u end up with a quadratic equation in x

    for tan ( Qtheta -10) i got 1.3 and 181.3 ...

    while for barrels i got 39600.. litres.

    for 1 barrel was 1970 litres..

    but they asked you to find the value for x or what exactly?
    are you sure from your answer?
    i thought we use the y for substituting in the equation

    Umm it was 2log3 (x/9) wasn't it? And the other term was log3 (√x) I recall.

    how is it possible to get 91.3

    not possible because tan is positive in 3rd quadrant and 3rd quadrant is angle greater than 180.

    i wrote (180 + 11.30) minus 10

    to get 181.3

    O yes but that way way also u should get a quadratic equation cuz (x/9)^2 is x^2/9^2

    yes and what was y
    the one given in the question?

    i got y= 1/5 and x= 81...
    and i think these are correct.. becuz i confirmed it with ma fellows
