&gt;&gt;&gt;if I have the equation...
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt; ln(y)- b*ln(x)=c where b and c are constants and I am trying to
&gt;&gt;&gt;re-arrange to get a ratio of y/x, how would I do it? With what I
&gt;&gt;&gt;remember of exponents, the best i can do is get so that y/x^b = exp(c)
&gt;&gt;&gt;which is no good.
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;any help would be greatly appreciated
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; if y/x^b = exp(c) is no good, then you are screwed.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;
&gt; unless y/x = exp(c/b)*y^(1-1/b) is useful.

or the other one:

y/x = exp(c) * x^(b-1)
