Is this a true statement? Why or why not?

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 1:22pmlog(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.
