Hi bobbym,

The solution #4397 is correct. Good work!

Regarding the problem #4398, I typed the problem incomplete. Regretted!

The problem should read

If log 3 = 0.477 and (1000)[sup]x[/sup] = 3, then what is x equal to?

#4399. If log[sub]10[/sub]2 = 0.3010 and log[sub]10[/sub]3 = 0.4771, then what is the value of log[sub]10[/sub]1.5?

#4400. If log[sub]10[/sub]2 = 0.3010 and log[sub]10[/sub]7 = 0.8451, then what is the value of log[sub]10[/sub]2.8?
