If one observer records a sound level of 60.0 dB and the other records a sound level of 90 dB, how far is the speaker from each observer? (Hint: use the equation given in problem 17.28, page 538 which relates the difference between the decibel levels to the distances from the source.)
    a. 3.7,116.3
