the learning curve describes the rate at which a person learns certain tasks. If a person sets a goal of typing N words per minute (wpm), the length of time t (in days) to achieve this goal is given by
t= 62.5 IN (1 N over 80)
according to this formula, what is the maximum number of words per minute? Round the answer to the nearest whole number.
B) solve for N. N=

Reiny,
I suspect that this is a log question and your IN is actually ln ( the natural logarithm)
so let's try:
t = 62.5 ln(1  N/80)
or is it
t = 62.5 ln( (1N)/80)

It is the same question and Steve had his doubts about the same question.
