Use logarithms to evaluate the given expression
(7.32^(1/10))*(2470^(30))
The books answer is 7.37 * 10^(101)
I'm not exactly sure how to go about doing this problem.
Let
Then
(I'm using log to the base 10 but feel free to use any base you desire.)
Now grab a calculator:
Now split the integer from the decimal part:
And raise both sides to the power of 10:
And use your calculator on that first factor:
Of course you might (as I do) own a calculator that you can multiply the original form out directly.
