Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

so sound a= x

sound b is 1000 times sound a so sound b = 1000x

the decibel level of the louder sound is 1000 times the quieter one

f(x)=1000x

where x is the intensity of the quieter one and f(x) is the intensity of the louder one

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
