Do not live in the world that has only rational numbers; it is irrational to do that. log8108 = log8$4 * 27)
log8108 = log84 + log827
=> log84 = $$frac{2}{3}\\$ log827 = $\frac{log_16{27}}{log_16{8}}\\$ log827 = $\frac{log_16{27}}{3/4}\\$ log827 = $\frac{4}{3}\\$ log1627 log827 = $\frac{4}{3}\\$ $\frac{log_9{27}}{log_9{16}}\\$ log827 = $\frac{4}{3}\\$ $\frac{\\frac{3}{2}}{log_9{16}}\\$ log827 = 2 * log169 log916 = b log169 = $\frac{1}{b}\\$ log827 = $\frac{2}{b}\\$ log8108 = $\frac{2}{3}\\$ + $\frac{2}{b}\\$ = 2$$$frac{1}{3}\\$ + $\frac{1}{b}\\$) = $\frac{2$b + 3$}{3b}$. The question is "find log8108." ##### Hence, the answer is "$\frac{2$b + 3$}{3b}$". Choice D is the correct answer. ###### Best Online CAT CoachingSignup and sample5 classes for free Signup Now! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiEnroll at 29000/- Next Weekend Batch Starts Sat, June 29th, 2019 ###### Best CAT Coaching in ChennaiEarly Bird discount of 7000 Personalised attention, Small batch sizes. ## CAT Preparation Online | CAT Arithmetic Videos On YouTube #### Other useful sources for Arithmetic Question | Logarithms and Exponents Sample Questions ##### Where is 2IIM located? 2IIM Online CAT Coaching A Fermat Education Initiative, 10-C, Kalinga Colony, Bobbili Raja Salai K.K.Nagar, Chennai.
