Question about Texas Instruments TI-30XA Calculator

Ad

The TI-30XA calculates logarithms to base e and base 10. You can calculate the log of x to any base b by calculating the logarithm of x and dividing it by the logarithm of b: log(x)/log(b) or ln(x)/ln(b).

The 30XIIS only calculates logs to base e (natural log, ln) and base 10 (common log, log). However logs to any base can be calculated indirectly.

To calculate log base b of x, calculate either log(x)/log(b) or ln(x)/ln(b).

To calculate log base b of x, calculate either log(x)/log(b) or ln(x)/ln(b).

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**☺**

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

The 30XA only calculates logs to base e (LN) and base 10 (LOG). However you can calculate the log of x to any base b simply by calculating log(x)/log(b) or ln(x)/ln(b)

The calculator handles logarithms to base e and base 10. You can calculate the log of x to any base b by dividing the log of x by the log of b. Calculate log(x)/log(b) or ln(x)/ln(b).

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.

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

log x base y = log x / log y

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

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

to do logarithms with other bases, use change-of-base.
let's say you want to do log base 5 of 25. for clarity i'll write this as log(5) 25.
you would have to do log(10) 25 / log(10) 5 to get 2.
key sequence:
[LOG], 2, 5, ), / (divide), [LOG], 5, )

Look the calculators has a default base 10 and you can't change it but you may learn this:

log x base y = log x / log y

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

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

so instead input log 8 base 2 you need to input log 8 / log 2

your example answer is about 0.919... if i get right what did you write.

Glad to help :)

Yes look you can't enter the base in calculators it's default 10 so use:

log x base y = log x / log y

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

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

so instead of log 8 base 2 input log 8 / log 2 it's easy

hope you understand :)

log x base y = log x / log y

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

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

so instead of log 8 base 2 input log 8 / log 2 it's easy

hope you understand :)

It's 2*3=6 but about the base, you can't change it in the calculators the default base it's 10 so log x it's Logbase 10^x 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

in your example log 9 base 3 = log 9 / log 3 etc.

hope you get it, and it was helpful

log x base y = log x / log y
