If log 27 = 1.431, then the value of log 9 is:

 [A]. 0.934 [B]. 0.945 [C]. 0.954 [D]. 0.958

Explanation:

log 27 = 1.431

log (33 ) = 1.431

3 log 3 = 1.431

log 3 = 0.477

log 9 = log(32 ) = 2 log 3 = (2 x 0.477) = 0.954.

 Olamikan Adesanmi said: (Wed, Apr 11, 2012 07:56:00 PM) You divide 1. 431 by 3, making log3 subject of formula you get log 3 = 0.477
