3. If an equilateral triangle is circumscribed about a circle of radius 12 cm,


determine the side of the triangle.
a. 34.64
Answer:

b. 41.57

c. 83.14

Solution:

4. Solve for x: 2 log5(x-4) = 4


a. 29
b. 21
Answer:

Solution:
2 log5(x 4) = 4
log5(x 4)2 = 4

(x 4)2 = 54
x2 8x + 16 = 625
x2 8x 609 = 0
(x 29)(x + 21) = 0

--------- > x = 29 , x = -21 (extraneous)
