Use log5(2)=0.4307 and log5(3)=0.6826 to approximate the value of log5=54.

According to the example in my book I would divide 0.6826 by 0.4307 and the answer is 1.5848 but this is not one of the answers given.

My choices are:

a) 0.1370

b) 2.4785

c) 0.8820

d) 0.7488

Where did I go wrong?

Thanks
