1 Logarithms Definition If y = a x then x = log a y For log 10 x use the log button. For log e x use the ln button.

5 Logarithms Example 3 Log 2 64 = x If y = a x then x = log a y 64 = 2 x 2 6 = 2 x x = 6 y = 64 a = 2 x = x

6
6 Logarithms Example 4 Log 2 1 / 4 = x If y = a x then x = log a y 1/4 =1/4 = 2 x 2 -2 = 2 x x = -2 y = 1 / 4 a = 2 x = x
