I found the material very effective in what it was trying to accomplish. I used the applet to solve the question asked at the bottom and found the equation simple and easy to understand. Using the formula provided, I'm sure it would not be difficult for one to teach this concept.

Technical Remarks:

assuming that L base of n is common knowledge among the students and they know how to solve using them of course.
