Evaluate the logarithm: \log _{5} 3125

1. Set \log _{5} 3125 = x 2. Evaluate means solving for x. We know that logarithms have the property of \log _{a} b = x, then a^x = b. Thus, we re-arrange: 5^x = 3125 3. Through estimating, we know 5^5 = 3125, thus: 5^x = 5^5 4. Therefore, x must equal to 5

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Solve: - 9x + 4x = -15

1. Begin by combining like terms (e.g terms that have the same variable, like x) - 9x + 4x = -5x 2. Now we have -5x = -15. Dividing both sides by -5, we obtain: x = 3 Solution: x = 3

The underlined text creates a comma splice, so the only answer that works is the one that turns the introduction into a phrase, thus the answer is D: Never before having been in a museum with such an extensive collection, they had a difficult time deciding how to make the most of the limited time they could spend there.
