Hi ;

for log base 10 use the the "log" key

example :

log(2) + log(3) = log(6)

enter 2 press the log key you will get 0.30102999 press the '+" key than 3 log you should get 0.47712125 for it Press the "=" or enter and you should get 0.778151250 for a answer than press inv or 2nd log and you should get 6 for a answer

and that all there is to it

Change base log


The TI 86 has two logarithmic functions: natural logarithm (ln) and common (decimal) logarithms (log). If you need the logarithm in any other base than e or 10 you need to use one of the two equivalent expressions
log_b(x) =ln(x)/ln(b) =log(x)/log(b)
Here b is the value of the base of the logarithm and x is the argument (the value whose logarithm you are seeking). Of course the argument x must be a positive number.
Note: On the TI 86 the log function can calculate the logarithm of a complex number, according to the manual.

Tip

The Log function!!


I calculators you can't change or set the base of 'log' is default 10 so you need to know these:

log x (base y) = log x / log y


when log x it's automatic log x (base 10) here some examples:

log 8 (base 2) = log 8 / log 2
log 27 (base 3) = log 27 / log 3


and the base it's default 10 again, and that is how you need to use it in calculators(no bases), and here the explanation to this:

log x (base y) = log x (base 10) / log y (base 10) = (log x / log 10) / (log y / log 10) = (log x / log 10) * (log 10 / log y) = log x / log y


here so other stuff about 'log' :

log (x*y) = log x + log y
log (x/y) = log x - log y


Hope it's helped

Hi, how do i calculate log^-1(-2) on my ti-30xa? thank u.


The inverse of the log function is the power function.
For log in base 10 that inverse is 10 to a power of
More generally, let b be the base of the logarithm. If y=log_b (x) then x=b^y
For your case log=log_10, to calculate the inverse you perform 10^(-2)=0.01=1/100
On calculators the log in base 10 and its inverse share the same physical key. One is accessed directly, the other is the shifted key function.

How to take anti log in casio fx 991 ms and give example?


Depending on the actual log function you are talking about, the inverse function (what you call the anti log) can be one of several things.
The inverse of the natural log (LN) is the exponential function e^x.
If y= ln(x) then x=e^y
On a calculator functions that are inverse of one another share the same physical key. If one function is marked on a key, the inverse function is usually the SHIFTED (or 2nd) key
The inverse of the common (decimal logarithm) is the power function with 10 as base.
Example: if y= log(x) then x=10^y
For an arbitrary base (must be positive) if y= log_b(x) then x=b^y.
Note: I do not think that the FX-300ms can perform log calculations in bases other than e (natural log) or 10 (common decimal log).

My calculator is giving me the wrong answers for the Log^-1. I keep on pressing SHIFT then the Log and the anti- log keeps on coming up as 10^. Before it would appear on the screen as Log^-1 ( ). Please...


Sorry the answer comes too late for your final exam. If you took the time to really understand what the inverse of a log function is, you would have saved yourself the anxiety before the test.

Anyway, the inverse of the logarithm in base 10 IS the power function with base 10.
y=log(x) <=> x=10^(y).

Some calculator manufacturers use the marking ^-1 to represent an inverse function. But recently one sees new calculators with the new notation.

By the way, the inverse of the natural log function (LN) is the exponential function (e^(x))

TI BA 2 Plus Calculator: Cannot figure out how to use log(10) function, not the natural log but the base of 10 log


The BA II+ does not have a key for the common logarithm function. You can calculate the common log of a number by calculating its natural log and then dividing by the natural log of 10.

log10(x) = ln(x)/ln(10)

The same procedure works for logarithms to any base.

How do i do log base x problems (other than log base 10) on the datexx ds 883?


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.

How do you compute Log base 5 to the exponent 5.9? i cant figure it out on this computer


Hello,
There is something missing in the formulation.

Any way you cannot calculate it directly on this calculator.You need to use the formula

log_5 (a)= ln(a) x log_5 (e) a is a positive integer

where log_5 means log in base 5 (my notation for the function)
e is the base of the natural logarithms (e=2.71928 )
ln is the natural log function

To obtain a more accurate value of e, calculate e^(1)
Here are some values of log(e) in different bases (for you to play with)

log_2(e)= 1.442695041
log_3(e)=0.9102392266
log_4(e)=0.7213475204
log_5(e)=0.6213349346
log_6(e)=0.5581106266
log_7(e)=0.5138983424
log_8(e)=0.4808983470
log_9(e)=0.4551196133
log_10(e)=log(e)=0.4342944819

If you have to use log in bases other than 10 or e, you will need a claculator that does that at the touch of a button. Some calculators that handle these calculations are the Casio FX-300ES, FX-115ES,FX-991ES, those called Natural Display, or WriteView(Sharp) or Textbook display.

Hope it helps.

Log function on casio fx-9750GA Plus


Look it's simple in the calculator the default base is 10 so when you input log 3 its log 3 base 10 so:
maybe you know in math log x base y = log x / log y . So if you need log 3 base 3 its => log 3 / log 3 (by the way its 1)

Logarithmic functions


All calculators it's the same:
log x base y = log x / log y
log (x*y) = log x + log y
log (x/y) = log x - log y
the default base in all the calculators is 10 so instead of writing log 4 base 2 you simply need to write log 4 / log 2
Hope you understand :)
