    Expand the logs and you end up with two linear equations for log(p) and log(q) - solve and enjoy.


    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.

    i know this is meaningless...
    but i think other solutions will be just similar, or another form of river_rat's solution.
