Yes missing bracket and I appear to be missing a lot. Thank you for your tolerance
I need some help with a problem i am currently having trying to transpose a geometric formula. The formula is ar^n and i need to solve it for n.
Someone told me i have to used logarithms to do it but its has been so long since i have done it i cant remember.
In a worked example i have a = 9volts, r = 0.9985 and i used n = 1 which gives me an answer of 8.964v (I know this is correct as this is term 1 in my sequence and 9V is term 0.
But i need to know what the value of n is when the product is 8V. I also know the answer is 29 but i just dont know how to achieve it!!
Any help would be hugely appreciated

this may not be the most complicated of maths problems and more of a physics problem but i couldnt access the partner site so thougth i have a try at posting here.
i was involved in a road traffic accident the other day where the other driver attempted what i think was an impossible overtake so i'd appreciate a little help in proving this. i was traveling at 40mph in the outside lane of a dual carriageway, a temporary lane opens up for 116m which the other driver attempted to overtake me in. he was about 4m behind me and traveling at the same speed. what i would like to know is,
1; the speed the other driver would need to be traveling at the end of the maneuver to overtake and pull back in front of me again,
2; the acceleration required by his vehicle to complete the maneuver and
3; (not strictly a maths question) an few examples of vehicles capable of completing this manuver.
many thanks for any help on this as it would be very useful in my insurance claim

Hello Mr Neeraj Karn, glad to know you. Please help me out.
In the game of tennis a player has two serves. If the first serve is successful the game continues. If the first serve is not successful the player serves again. If this second service is successful the game continues.
If both serves are unsuccessful the player has served a "double fault" and loses the point.
Gabriella plays tennis. She is successful with 60% of her first serves and 95% of her second serves.
(a) Find the probability that Gabriella serves a double fault.
If Gabriella is successful with her first serve she has a probability of 0.75 of winning the point.
If she is successful with her second serve she has a probability of 0.5 of winning the point.
(b) Find the probability that Gabriella win the point.
