I need help with a Algebra question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

The Richter scale is used for measuring the magnitude of an earthquake. The Richter magnitude *R* is given by the model below, where *E* is the energy (in kilowatt-hours) released by the earthquake.

*R* = 0.67 log (0.37*E*) + 1.46

Suppose an earthquake releases 14,500,000,000 kilowatt-hours of

energy. What is the earthquake’s magnitude? Round to three decimal places.

A. 4.400

B. 3.979

C. 8.268

D. 7.979
