    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
    We could have substituted y or solved the question merely through logarithm laws which is what I did.

    Just think about it if x=81, log3(81) gives 4 which is y. And therefore the expression which Summaiya got for log3 (x/9), y-2, is equals to 2. If you sub x=81 in, you end up with y-2 equaling 2.

    i got y= 1/5 and x= 81...
    and i think these are correct.. becuz i confirmed it with ma fellows
    could you please tell me what the question wanted?
    i actually forgot and i think i did not read it well.

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

    Well I suppose there is that way of solving the question too.

    so substituting is right?
    and they asked you to find the value for y?
    i think i did everything wrong..........

    anyways, what was the value in the integration question or what was the method you used?

    y-3 not possible.......because log 9 to the base 3 is 2...

    first was Y-2 and other was Y/2

    i used area under curve from 1 to 4 minus area of triangle from x=4 to x=1.8 adn height 11.

    area of triangle = 1/2 * (4 - 1.8) * 11

    Nah man even if you substituted the value of y and ended up with a quadratic equation, you're gonna gain at least 2 marks. The other two marks are for finding a solution of y if you did substitution. But if you solved it through log laws then the remaining two marks are for solution of x instead of y.

    That's precisely what I did as well.
