What is the purpose of using logs in stead of plain calculations?

Ad

Some calculations are simpler and easier using logarithms. They also appear in nature. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithm

Hi,

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

goodluck!

There is nothing to solve. Just calculate it on a scientific calculator that has log key.

From the screen below, choose your case as your statement is ambiguous (to me). Question: What is the purpose of carrying the 1 in the denominator of the argument of the logarithm function?

Always simplify as much as possible.

It's a quirk of notation. When a book says tan^2(x), it actually means (tan(x))^2. Only the trigonometric and hyperbolic functions seem to get written this way. If one wants the square of a logarithm, for example, one doesn't write log^2(x).

The short answer: if you want tan^2(55), calculate tan(55) then square it.

100% is the same thing as 1, so .25 / 100% is the same as .25 / 1, which is 0.25 as the calculator shows. Why do you think it should be 25 and not 0.25?

For common log, use the LOG key. For natural log, use the LN key. In either case, enter (or calculate) the value of the argument and then press the appropriate key.

To calculate the common log of 2, press 2 LOG =

To calculate the natural log of 2, press 2 LN =

To calculate the common log of 2, press 2 LOG =

To calculate the natural log of 2, press 2 LN =

Log mentioned above is base 10. Hope this helps.

P.S. I posted an image, got a post error if typed on plain text, fixya won't accept.

To calculate the log base 2 of a value, calculate its log and then divide by the log of 2. You can use either the log or the ln keys, but be consistent. For example, to calculate the log base 2 of 16, you can calculate either log(16)/log(2) or ln(16)/ln(2).

You can calculate logs to any base by using the relationship

log-base-b(x) = log(x) / log(b) = ln(x) / ln(b)

So, to calculate the log base 2 of 32, for example, calculate log(32) and divide by log(2).

log-base-b(x) = log(x) / log(b) = ln(x) / ln(b)

So, to calculate the log base 2 of 32, for example, calculate log(32) and divide by log(2).

Calculate it the same way as on most other calculators, using the relation

log_b(x) = log(x)/log(b) = ln(x)/ln(b)

In words, calculate the log base 10 of x divided by the log base 10 of the base. You can also use the natural log function instead of the common (base 10) log--just be consistent.

log_b(x) = log(x)/log(b) = ln(x)/ln(b)

In words, calculate the log base 10 of x divided by the log base 10 of the base. You can also use the natural log function instead of the common (base 10) log--just be consistent.

The natural log is the LN key, located just to the left of the 7 key.

To calculate the common log, use the relationship log(x) = ln(x)/ln(10).

To calculate the natural log of 3, press 3 LN

To calculate the common log of 3, press 3 LN / 1 0 LN =

To calculate the common log, use the relationship log(x) = ln(x)/ln(10).

To calculate the natural log of 3, press 3 LN

To calculate the common log of 3, press 3 LN / 1 0 LN =

To use the log function you press the [LOG] key in the middle of the first row of keys.

To use it.

Enter the number the log of which you want to calculate (must be positive)

Press the [LOG] key

Result is displayed.

Ex log(33.54)

33.54 [LOG] result is 1.5255

Once a logarithm has been calculated, use the [+/-] key, the change sign key located between the [.] and the [=] keys, on the bottom row of keys. You must press the change sign after you have calculated the logarithm.
