1. Convert to logarithmic function: e^3=0.0498
3. ln(-3)=0.0166 is my guess
you cannot take the ln of a negative number
okay well I was wrong, could it be ln(3)=0.0166?
where is .01666 coming from?
i divided 0.0498 by 3. that is totally wrong though.
since it just asks you to convert to log form, just leave it
okay if the equation was e^-3=0.0498 would I just rewrite it as:
ln(e^-3)=ln(0.0498) ? Also, does ln remain on the right side as well as the left?
no they cancel each other out, i was just showing you the operation; sorry for the confusion.
Uh, you mean -3=ln(0.0498...), right?
then it would be
that's his 2nd question
Well, ok, however you want to handle it. But seeing stuff like 3=ln(0.0498) makes me nervous.
