Can someone tell me how to get this function in terms of q:
p = 500,000/q^1.5
I think this should be the way to approach the question. Correct me if i am wrong. learning along the way
p = 500000 / q^1.5
pq^1.5 = 500000 ( cross multiply )
q^1.5 = 500000 / p
lg(q^1.5) = lg(500000/p) ( lg both sides )
(1.5)lg(q) = lg(500000/p)
lg(q) = lg(500000/p) / 1.5
q = 10 ^ (lg(500000/p) / 1.5)
Hope it helps.
