I had the attached multiple choice question in an online practice exam. I'm not sure how to work this out.

Log Question

Is there anything on the exam to indicate that the logarithm is base $2$? –  David Mitra Jan 17 '13 at 13:42
    
It's a Computer Science Algorithm and Data Structure class so I would assume it's base 2 –  bot_bot Jan 18 '13 at 9:34

Use the property of the logs that says that $\log ab = \log a + \log b$. You get $\log 2n = \log 2 + \log n = 36.5 + \log 2$
