    solve for pronumeral

    my problem is this log 2y/3=3

    i think to make like this y/3=2^3
    we get y/3=8
    then to get for y we have y=8x3 =24

    therefore y =24

    Is this correct ??

    This is the way I'd do it:
    2y/3 = 3
    2y = 3*3
    2y = 9
    y = 9/2
    y = 4.5

    Yes, that's correct.

    So, if y=24,
    Log(2)[y/3] = 3
    Log(2)[24/3] =? 3
    Log(2)[8] =? 3
    Log(2)[2^3] =? 3
    3Log(2)[2] =? 3
    3 =? 3
    Yes, so, OK.
    which is

    Yes, there are sometimes different answers to only one question by the many "answerers" here. Which one is correct? You have to check their answers against the original equation/inequality/relation in your question if that is possible. If not, I cannot say how you choose the correct one.

    It is okay if you are not yet very good at English. Math is not a language---er, sorry about that---does not depend much on English to be understood. Well, except in word problems.

    Post them questions, one at a time. Let us---we here---solve them.
