Schoolwork Help Thread
« on: April 08, 2011, 03:52:13 PM »

Okay, apparently I'm horrible at math because I cannot figure out this problem that's on a summative assignment we have to do. Could someone explain it to me?

Basically, it comes down to this:

54,032 = 1,000 x er x 18

I'm solving for r. Any help appreciated.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

That is the reason why I don't have any math classes anymore.

Thanks. For a moment there I was worried, though. I almost needed to blow you.

Well, you'll have to first divide 54,032 by 1000= 5,403.2
Then ln(er x 18) = ln(5,403.2)            You can put a ln on both side

ln(er x 18) = rx18 because ln(e) = 1 and when you have an exponent in a logarithm you can put it(the exponent) in front of the log.
So this bring us to
r x 18 = ln(5,430.2)
r= ln(5,403.2) /18

Exponent*

But yes, that is correct above.  That's actually one of the most simple log problems possible, so you must have not been paying attention in class :|

I loved solving logs problems. Probably the only thing thing I enjoyed in my math classes, even though I sucked at it x)
Also exponent is exposant in French.
