In the instructions for a problem like this, you will have been given the following: `log3~~.4771` and `log2~~.3010`

Then we use the property of logarithms: `log(A/B)=logA-logB`

Thus `log(3/2)=log3-log2~~.4771-.3010=.1761`

----------------------------------

The answer is `log(3/2)~~.1761`

----------------------------------

From a calculator we get `log(3/2)~~.176091259056`
