1) for example: log5 (14) = 2x-9 5^[log5 (14)] = 14 = 5^(2x-9) so the question is 5 to the what = 14 ? say 5^z = 14 (we know that z is (2x-9)) z log 5 = log 14 using base 10 logs (or e or whatever, I use base 10) z = log14/log5 = 1.146 / .699 = 1.64 so 2x-9 = 1.64 2x = 10.64 x...

If A is in quadrant 3, then 2 A is in quadrant 1 or 2 5^2 + 12^2 = 169 = 13^3 so sin A = -5/13 and cos A = -12/13 cos 2A = cos^2 A - sin^2 A = (144 - 25)/169 = 119/169
