Kepler's third law of planetary motion relates P, the period of a planet's orbit, to R, the planet's mean distance from the sun, through the equation log P = 1/2 (log k + 3 log R), where k is a constant.

a) Rewrite the formula as a single logarithm.

b) Rewrite the formula in exponential form.

c) Rewrite the formula, solving for P.
