Hey, I was using guess and check to find a value, and it ended up being close to 15.83007499. I am certain it could be represented by an equation, but I can't find out what that would be. There is a good chance it would be a log natural. If you do find out what it is, I'd love to know. Thanks!!

It could be incorrect in the last couple of decimal places, I'm approximating using desmos. I can definitely keep guessing and checking, I just want to try to find a pattern based on other values as well. Thanks for the help! Edit: Also I think I've found another way around it. A more simplified answer for this would be nice, but not super important. Thanks! Last edited by akunzler; October 14th, 2019 at 07:48 PM.

He's jerking your chain. None of us can help you until you tell us where the number is coming from (i.e., what is the problem statement).
