Hello,
The wrong terminology is playing tricks on you.

1. If you are talking about the natural logarithms, the inverse function of the natural log is the exponential: ln(e^(x))=e^(ln(x)) = x
2. If you are talking about the common logarithms (log in base 10) to find the antilog of a number, say x, you raise 10 to the power of x.
Exemple: What is the antilog ( that is the name, not inverse log) of 0.345?
Answer; antilog of 0.345 = 10^(0.345) =2.21309471

Look at the last two commands on the screen capture.

Hope it helps

If I understand you correctly, the inverse of the log operation is exponentiation. So if your log = x, the inverse is 10 raised to the x power. On most TI calculators this is on the same key as the log function.

pH is minus (log to base 10) of the hydrogen ion activity of an aqueous solution, or (log to base 10) of (1/hydrogen ion activity)

To get the inverse log, i.e the hydrogen ion activity corresponding to a specified pH, simply enter the pH value and press

Hello,
The TI 89 cannot calculate the inverse modulo, but you can enter a program that can do that. I found a link to such program. Here it is.

Hi,
Sorry to contradict you but there are many types of logarithms, the most important ones are

2. the natural logarithms (logarithms in base e)
3. the binary logarithms (logarithms in base 2)
On calculators, the common logarithms are labeled [LOG], and the natural logarithms are labeled [LN].

The inverse function of the natural log function is the exponential (e^(x)), and the inverse of the log in base ten function is the function ten to the power of. It is called (sometimes) the antilog

Ex:
Question What is the antilog of 3.5678?
Answer The antilog of 3.5678 is 10^(3.5678) = 3696.579068
Verification: log(3696.57908) =3.5678

Hope it helps.

### 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.

### What button do you push on the TI-86 calculator to do the inv log function?

For the inverse natural log, press 2nd LN. For the inverse common log, press 2nd LOG.

For example, to calculate the inverse natural log of 2, press 2nd LN 2 ENTER and you'll get about 7.389 .

### How do you calculate the inverse log.

Raise the base of your log to the power produced by the answer.

Example: If ln(x) = y, raise e (base of the natural logarithm) to the y to get x = e^y
Example 2: log(x) = y - x = 10^y

So if log(x) = 2, x = 10^2 = 100

### CAn't find the inverse log on the calculator

Press "2nd LN" which gives you the exponential (inverse natural log) of 7.41 = 1652.426....

Pressing LN will give you back 7.41

Same procedure to use logs to base 10, use LOG and 2nd LOG

### Log & reciprocal functions

There is no log (base 10) button on a TI-89. It's buried in the CATALOG as log(. As a shortcut, you can do ln(#)/ln(base), where # and base are replaced with what you want. For the inverse of a log, do the base raised to the part on the other side of the equals sign. So, log(x) = 2 would become 10^2 = x.
