seventy years young student of maths is fun

In need of lots of help!

lets start with:

algebra - working with exponents and logarithms-

question five

solve (for x)

2log3(x)=5

answer D x = 9square root(3)

i presume the 2 means that x is squared in the question?

please explain what 9square root of (3) is and how it is the square root of 243?

thank you ....
