"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Can anyone explain Devante's post #7?  He says

This does not make sense to me, and seems to me to have exactly one value of x for which it is true.

Can anyone prove the following....
Given,
((2/3)^k)n = 1
Required to prove,
k is equal to log of n on base 3/2

Hi random_fruit;

It could be a quiz problem and I agree it appears  to have only 1 solution in R.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Probability is the most important concept in modern science, especially as nobody has the slightest notion what it means.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.

hey ganesh jus a little thing
if we take  A and B of the same signs

here it should be

and in the other ones also... the argument has to be alwys positive

Everything that has a begining has an EnD!!!

Hi Shekhar,
Here is the solution.
((2/3)^k)n = 1
⇒(2/3)^k = 1/n
⇒(2/3)^k = n-¹
Applying log on both sides.
⇒k log(2/3) = -log n
Multiplying (-) on both sides
⇒k log(2/3)-¹ = log n
⇒k log(3/2) = log n
∴ k = (log n)/(log (3/2))
⇒ k = log n base (3/2)
