(The actual equation is d=10^((m(v)-M(v)+5)/5), i have already have errors for m(v) and M(v) and have combined them by using sqrt(dM(v)^2+dm(v)^2), the equation is used for calculating cosmoligical distances).

I have an equation in the form y=10^x, i have an error in x, dx. I am unsure how to find the associated error in y.

Hi Jack_O!

(try using the X

Hint: just differentiate … if y = 10

Hi tiny-tim, doesn't bode well that i had to look up the differential of 10^{x}

Hi Jack_O!
