Superincreasing Sequence and Prove that Expression is Prime

1) Let S= {b ,b ,...........b } satisfies b j+1 >2b j for all j =1,2,3,.......n-1. Prove that S is a superincreasing sequence. ≡ 2) Prove that n E N with n ≥ 3 is prime if and only if there exists an integer m such that m^(n-1) ≡ 1 (mod n)^((n-1)/q) but m is not ≡ ( mod n) for any prime q| (n-1)

Use of Calculator : Log Function

Please explain how I make this work via my TI-30 (or any calculator for that matter). I dont understand how to "punch" it in. 10 Log 1.9X10^-4 / 1X10^-12 the answer is 82.8 Thank you for helping me get to this answer.

Quadratic equation and equilibrium concentration

The Quadratic Equation. Consider the reaction N2O4(g) = 2 NO2(g) at 25 C in a 5.00-L container. Use the quadratic equation to determine the equilibrium concentrations of the N2O4 and NO2 if the initial amounts are 0.100 mol N2O4 and 0.00 mol NO2. The value of the equilibrium constant for the reaction is 4.63 x 10-3 at 25 C

Using a Quadratic Equation
