How to Calculate Logarithms

The logarithm is denoted as loga b and this entry reads as: The logarithm of x to base b

When calculating logarithms, keep in mind that the numbers a and b must be greater than 0 and a must not be equal to 1.

loga b exists for a> 0, a โ  1, b> 0

Logarithms with base a equal to 2, 10 or number e got their names:

loge b whose base is equal to Euler's number e (e = 2.7182818284 ...) is called - Natural logarithm and is denoted ln b . For example, ln 4 is the same as loge 4, but the ln entry itself says that the base is โโe and therefore the notation is shortened.

log10 b whose base is 10 is called Common logarithm and is denoted lg b . For example, lg 6, which is the same as log10 6

log2 b whose base is 2 is called Binary logarithm and is denoted lb b , such logarithms are often used in computer science. For example, lb 3 is the same as log2 3.

You can easily determine whether the logarithm loga b is negative or positive, for this there is a rule: if 0 < a > 1 and 0 < b <1 or 0 < a <1 and 0 < b > 1 then the logarithm is negative, otherwise positive

loga b <0 if 0 < a > 1 and 0 < b <1 or 0 < a <1 and 0 < b > 1

For example, these logarithms will be negative log1/3 4, log4 1/3, log2/3 5, log5 2/3, etc. That is, either a or b must be less than one, but not both.

Calculating the logarithm means finding the exponent to which the number a must be raised to get the number b. In simple terms, when we calculate the logarithm, we always find the power, and if we raise the number a to this power, we get the number b.

Let's denote x as the unknown power of a, then we can write the following equation: a x = b

Here are some examples:
Given the logarithm of log4 64, we need to find such an exponent that when raising the number 4 to it we should get 64. Let's write the equation:
4 x = 64 < br /> 4 x = 4 3
x = 3
Let's check, raise the number 4 to the power of 3: 4 3 = 64.

In general, any value of the logarithm is always easy to check, it is enough to raise the number a to a power equal to the value of the logarithm, and if the result is equal to the number b, then the answer is correct.
