 Math Central Quandaries & Queries
 Question from Susan, a student: Solve for x: logbase4 (sin x) = -0.5 Could you please show me the steps taken to arrive at the answer?

Hi Susan,

You need to use the property of logarithms that states

$a^{\log_a(x)} = x.$

Write back if you need more assistance,
Penny
