ok so ive got 2 ln 5 = 3.22?

do you think that would be the final answer or did i miss a step.

and the full working should show=

=ln (25)

=ln(5^2)

=2 ln 5

=3.22

thanks again for your help - March 26th 2013, 12:55 AMProve ItRe: Please help with this question!
That is correct (although of course your final step should have an approximate sign, not an equals sign).
