In need of lots of help!

algebra - working with exponents and logarithms-

Welcome to the forum, young man.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
