# Thread: Leave the following in terms of Lambda_3I

1. ## Leave the following in terms of Lambda_3I

I need to have this formula in terms of Lambda_3i
Can anyone help me with this?

T.I.A.

Exponentiate both sides...

Thank you. Any chance of a solution?

What you want is one step away from what you have, so you have been given the solution already.

Now I know why this smiley is here

You know what they say about small steps and mankind, don't you?

That's right, those that take small steps, have short legs ...

Okay, I can see that you're giving me a gentle nudge to think for myself ...

I will have a bash at it ...

Any good?

$\displaystyle \log_b a=x \iff b^x=a$

8. ## Re: Leave the following in terms of Lambda_3I

The part that I'm struggling with is:

log (lambda_3i)

If (lambda_3i) is the base, then what and where is 'a' ?

9. ## Re: Leave the following in terms of Lambda_3I

It seems unlikely that $\displaystyle \lambda_{3i}$ is the base.

When a log is written just as log it will be intended to be either base 10 or base e.

Is this the one?

If it's \displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \log_{10} \end{align*} then you should be making 10 the base of the exponential.

If it's \displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \log_e \end{align*} then you should be making e the base of the exponential.

Yes, silly mistake. Just for completeness, I will re-post my workings.

Thank you for your time and patience.

Correct. You could simplify this using an index law if you wished.

I would appreciate your guidance with this ...

... thinking

... initial thoughts

I don't think the above is appropriate, as we're not multiplying or dividing ...

15. ## Re: Leave the following in terms of Lambda_3I

I'm thinking something along these lines ...
