In Mathematics, logarithm or log is the inverse function to exponentiation. In simple terms, the logarithm is the power to which the given number needs to be raised in order to obtain another number. That means that the logarithm of a given number x is the exponent to which another fixed number, the base, must be raised in order to produce that number x.
Logarithms are used to solve problems involving exponential growth or decay.
Let’s understand the concept with an example.
then, then the logarithm of 1000 to base 10 is 3
because 10 to the power of 3 is 1000 (10^3 = 1000).
The logarithm function is written as log_b(x), or sometimes as just log(x) when the base is understood. The logarithm of x to base b is denoted as log_b(x).
There are 7 rules of logarithms to keep in mind.
