### HW problem 7A.17

For part a of the problem, it asks to find the order of each reactant. For B, I don't know how to calculate what B equals when setting up the equation. I have (3.02/1.25)^b = 50.8/17.4. When these fractions are simplified, the numbers don't have any common factor. Would I have to use log rules to solve for b, or is there any easier way of doing this problem?

### Re: HW problem 7A.17

from there you can take the log of both sides and use log rules to move the B to the front, then divide and isolate the B. From there you just plug it into your calculator and find what B equals.
