log(2.848) = 1.602 * 1.778
Is this a true statement? Why or why not?

log(2.848)=
log(2*sqrt2)=log2+logsqrt2
= log2+1/2 log2=3/2 log2 which is nowhere near 1.602*1.778
additionally, the product on the right is approximately 2.4
taking the antilog of each side
antilog 2.848 is between zero and one (2.8 is less than ten).
the right side is 2.4
so it icannot be true. 
Thank you for the clarification!
