Insecticide A is said to be twice as potent as insecticide B if a concentration c of A is needed to kill the same proportion of insects as are killed by a concentraion 2c of insecticide B. In general A is more times potent than B if a concentration of of B kills the same proportion of insects as does a concentration c of A.
The probability that an insect is killed by a concentration c of insecticide A is:
with the correspoding probability for insecticide B being
If A is twice as potent as B, what is the relation between and ?
What is the relation if A is times as potent as B?
I'm not really sure where to start with this question, but I think with a hint I can finish the rest on my own.
Help much appreciated! Thanks.
