Hi All..

I wanted to know how do you make the Weibull equation below into the form y=mx+c. The solution to this has the logs taken twice..

Thank you

Hi.. thanks for your reply.. there is no question just from notes where the weibull is in the form y=mx+c.. just wanted to know the process on how it is derived?

I will put the solution..

Hi dadon,

We have

Note that we can re-write this as

Taking logs to the base of both sides gives

Take the minus over to make it easier to deal with....

Now we know that thus we are left with

Taking logs of base again and using that same principle leads to

Using the fact that gives the required result.

Hope this helps. - October 30th 2008, 02:19 PMdadonthanks
Thank you.. that's exactly what I needed..You made it very clear line by line..:)
