I'm doing a review sheet for math and a certain question states: "solve: ln(3/4)"

What should I take solve to mean?

Do I just change it's form to ln(3/4) = ln3 - ln 4 ?

Or, perhaps, I need to actually enter in the value into a calculator.

How would you take on this question?

**Mary**, Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 11:03pmAn other question states: "Solve: sin(35)"

Again, same idea, how should I take this question? Should I just convert it into radians or should I just enter it into a calculator?

The way they word these review questions are confusing to me. They should really be more specific...

Again, how would you math pros take these kinds of questions? Your input is much appreciated!

**Mary**, Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 11:06pmCorrection, I should have said convert it to radians using a calculator or convert to radians using this conversion thingy: pi/180 degrees

**Mary**, Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 11:09pmActually it probably has something to do with trig identities...

**Steve**, Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 11:14amit means nothing to say "solve ln(3/4)"

There's nothing to solve.

It should say something like "evaluate ln(3/4) as a sum of logs of integers" or something

Check examples in the same section of the text to see what they mean.

If it's a stand-alone problem, question the teacher. You can't "solve" an expression. You solve equations, evaluate expressions in terms of some other expressions.

**Mary**, Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 7:03pmThanks, Steve! They are stand alone questions, so I'll ask my teacher what he means.
