    animation problem



    HI im sure my problem is pretty basic for a mathematician. I havnít done any real math since high school. So I hope someone can help me out. I need to find a constant value that can be multiplied on to the 0.1 ten times so that o.1 will equal five.

    What I mean is 0.1 * constant = answer
    Answer * constant = answer
    Answer * constant = answer

    Etc etc ten so on the tenth time
    Answer * constant = 5

    Haha sorry for the non mathematical explanation

    Really 0.01 is my only solid constant starting out.
    10 and 5 are changeable

    A formula would be great thanks heaps
    (by the way this is a animation problem in flash)

    The equation you need to solve is (0.1)x^{10} = 5 \Rightarrow x^{10} = 50.

    Then x = (50)^{1/10} = 1.4787576 (correct to seven decimal places).
