make use of your main "log rules"
log (8/3) = log 8  log 3 = 2.079  1.099
= 0.98
log 24 = log (3x8) = log 3 + log 8
= ....
log 25 = log 5^2
= 2 log 5
= ...

Okay I got it
log (8/3) = log 8  log 3 = 2.079  1.099
= 0.98
log 24 = log (3x8) = log 3 + log 8
= 3.688
log 25 = log 5^2
= 2 log 5
= 2.138

great,
BTW, how would you find 'a' itself?
