    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If Logb2=A and Logb49=B, what is logb397, in terms of A and B.

    This is one of the bonus question in my geometric quiz and i don't remember if the number is 397. I wonder if anyone get this?
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    here is what i did
    bA=2 and bB=49
    b=21/A b=491/B
    491/B=21/A --> log(49)/log(2)=B/A

    because this is geometric quiz, so i assume this one have a geometric
    so i use arn-1
    r : log(49)/log(2)=B/A
    a : log(2)

    am i right?
