5. (Crazy bonus question) Without using your calculator, determine which is larger: eπ or π e .
6. (The Logarithmic Scales) There are three widely used measurement scales which involve
common logarithms: the Richter scale, the decibel scale and the pH scale. The computations
involved in all three scales are nearly identical so pay close a...
