A sound wave of 8 dB travels 1 meter and ends up being 5 dB. What is the volume of the attenuated sound wave after 1.5 meters?
Oh, ok.

Hmm, I got

I think that is correct... Tell me if you agree.

Decibels are already exponential, so it turns more into the inverse proportion law. So:

OK, now I think I have it. Decibels are logarithmic, so I believe this is the way you'd do it...
- Yet another possible explanation
I'm aware that my answer sounds really unrealistic but my calculations (I hope) are all correct and 8 dB is barely audible in the first place.
