Geek Talk / Maths Help
« on: November 04, 2014, 01:47:47 PM »
I have a brain blank


I have an equation:


10.56 = 10^(x-8/10)+10^(x-10/10)..... another 8 similar values


I could log all of these to give me


log10.56 = log(x-8/10)+log(x-10/10)[/size][size=78%]...[/size]


I need to find my value of x


could i then just times together the values inside each log?

I looked at this in farnham today, and it is indeed very shiny.




The specialized is the 'safe option', the GT I like the look of but can't find one anywhere near Guildford to have a look at, the Merida I found in farnham today and was very impressed! (the shop in farnham don't do the right type of bike2work scheme though)

Places will be limited, but hopefully enough for everyone who wants to go.
