Q: A single sinusoidal signal is found in a large amount of noise. If the RMS value of the noise is 0.5 volts and the SNR is 10 dB, what is the RMS amplitude of the sinusoid?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've related the question to the following equation: SNR=20log(singal/noise)dB

My answer is 1.58 volts, BUT I'm not entirely sure if that is what they are asking for. Just looking for a little guidance on the question.
