You appear to have When entering into a calculator, use the change of base formula. In this case, Do not confuse the change of base formula with the quotient rule for logs.

In this case, Do not confuse the change of base formula with the quotient rule for logs. having Tr = 1/1-log_L(1-r) with L = 2 and r = 0.02 i get this to be equal to 0.97168 and i know the answer is approx 100 so should my answer be multiplied by 100?? is this the rite procedure?
No. Where does the 100 come from?.
