### Re: Logarithms

Hi ganesh;

This is my answer to for problem 2

We can change the original problem to read:

So x = 8

Is this OK?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

### Re: Logarithms

We have

We set p equal to it and take the log of both sides

log p = log (
)

log p =

log p =

log p = 0
p = 1

The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong.
