Homework Help: algebra/logs

Posted by Nancy on Thursday, August 2, 2012 at 10:06am.

I don't understand this problem:

(1/2)n = 0.015625
n log 0.5 = log 0.015625
n = log 0.5 / log 0.015625
n = 6

When I plug log .5 into the calculator it gives .3010 and when I plug .15625 to the calculator it is -1.806 and that would be -.3010/-1.806 =.1666. How is the answer 6? Really, can you provide a detailed explanation? I am really confused.
