(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Five trumpet players have a sound intensity level of 75dB. What would be the sound intensity level of 30 such trumpet players? _______dB

2. Relevant equations

Increasing the sound intensity by a factor of 10 results in an increase in perceived loudness by approx. a factor of 2.

Beta = (10dB)log_{10}(I/I_{0})

Where I_{0}= 1.0x10^{-12}W/m^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried finding a ratio and applying that to the 2nd situation but my answers were wrong. Can someone please help me ASAP!!

Thank you!
