So the equation i've got from the question is

4 = 10log10(S1/40)

 

next I use the rules of logs to rearrange the equation

 

4 = log10((S1/40)10)

 

then take the log10 of both sides

 

0.602 = (S1/40)10

 

Assuming I have done everything right so far. Where do I take this equation next?

4 = 10log10(S1/40)

4 = log10((S1/40)10)

Now raise both sides to the power of 10

10^4=10^(log10((S1/40)10)

10000=(S1/40)^10

(10000)^(0.5)=((S1/40)^10)^0.5

100=(S1/40)^5

100*40^5 = S1^5

100*10^5*4^5=S1^5

10 000 000*4^5=S1^5

4*10^(1.4)=S1

S1=100.47  approx

 

---

That was really messy, I will try and check it.

4 = 10log10(S1/40)

0.4=log10(S1/40)

10^0.4=S1/40

40*10^0.4=S1

S1 = 100.47  approx

 

The second method is much better !!
