in astronomy the observed brightness of stars is called apparent magnitude. two stars can be compared using the formula d=2.5logr, where d us the difference of the apparent magnitude of the two stars and r is their brightness ratio. The brightest star Sirius A has an apparent magnitude of -1.46. Alpha Centauri has an apparent magnitude of -2.9.

1) find the difference between the apparent magnitude if Sirius A and Alpha Centauri

2) Find the brightest ratio of the two stars to the nearest tenth

f(x) = 3^{X}

f^{-1}(x ) = log 3

log ( 6c +3 ) /11 = log 3c/ 5

If the log of 2 expressions are equal, then the argument of the log function has to be equal.

6c + 3 / 11 = 3c /5

5( 6c + 3) = 33 c

30c + 15 = 33c

3c = 15

c = 15/3 = 5

^{-1}(x).^{-1}(x) without defining a new function, which we call logarithm. y = f^{-1}(x) = log_{3}(x), which contains all the information as x = 3^y, i.e., the number, x, the base, 3, and the exponent, y.
