This is basically just arithmetic. You calculate $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2} * (11 * 10^6)^2 \approx what?$ $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2} * (60 * 10^6)^2 \approx what?$ $(11 * 10^6) * \log_2(11 * 10^6) = (11 * 10^6)\{\log_2(11) + 6\log_2(10)\} = what?$ $(60 * 10^6) * \log_2(60 * 10^6) = (60 * 10^6)\{\log_2(60) + 6\log_2(10)\} = what?$ Then you fill out the rest of the table.

$\displaystyle 60 * 10^6 = 6 * 10^1 * 10^6 = 6 * 10^{(1 + 6)} = 6 * 10^7 \implies \\ \displaystyle \frac{1}{2} * (60 * 10^6) = \frac{1}{2} * (6 * 10^7) = 3 * 10^7.$ Last edited by skipjack; November 3rd, 2018 at 10:56 AM.
