Hello ,i am trying to do dbm math without the logarithmic expression. I want to convert 15 dbm so its 10 dbm +5 dbm 5dbm=4dbm+1dbm=(10-3-3)dbm+(10-3-3-3)dbm = 10/2*2*2mW *10/2*2*2mW=2.5*1.25mW=3.125mW so (10+5)dbm=31.25dBm but on the other hand 15dBm=3+3+3+3+3dbm=2^5mW where did i go wrong in my first calculation?

for 15 dBm: 10^(15/10) = 31.623 mW

Reverse: 10*log10(31.623) = 15 dBm

Why do you convert the math into a puzzle that goes wrong?
