Tip & How-To about Casio fx-300ES Calculator

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

change base log


Use the log ab function in the Math menu. You'll have to enter the base each time; there is no way to have the calculator default to a base other than e or 10.

I need help with a change of base formula problem.


It's simple here some logs:

log x base y = log x / log y
log (x*y) = log x + log y
log (x/y) = log x - log y
you just need to know that the default base of log in calculators is 10, so log x mean
log x base 10 = log x / log 10,
so write log x / log y for log x base y example:
log 8 base 2 = log 8 / log 2 that is how you write it on calculator, hope it was helpful

how to calculate logarithm values with different base


Like you maybe know in math (I know!) log x base y = log x / log y
so what you need its just input your number (x for example) and log it, than divide log x by log 2.
just: log x / log 2. (by the way in calculator the meaning of log x is log x base 10 the default base is 10)

how to calculate


It's very simple: the calculators have a default base 10 so that log x it's log x base 10 so here is some logs:
log x base y = log x / log y
log (x*y) = log x + log y
log (x/y) = log x - log y
Hope it's helped
