A logarithm is the opposite of a power. An exponential function such as aΛ£ = b can be solved by rewriting it as logab = x, where a is the base of the logarithm. Where a is not given, it should be assumed to be 10. The change of base rule can be used to change the base of any logarithm.

Basics of logarithms

The Natural Logarithmic Function is y = lnx, where lnx is the inverse of the Natural Exponential Function, eΛ£. This can be used to solve equations with the two functions.

The logarithmic function

To add logarithms, the Multiplication Law must be used. The Multiplication Law states that logx + logy = logxy.

Adding logarithms

To subtract logarithms, the Division Law must be used. The Division Law states that logx βˆ’ logy = log(x/y).

Subtracting logarithms

The Power Rule of logarithms states that the logarithm of a power can be written as the exponent multiplied by the logarithm of the base.

Power of logarithms

All the above rules of logarithms can be used to solve equations involving logarithms. If there is a single logarithm with the same base on both sides of the equation, then the logarithms can be omitted and the arguments can be set equal to each other.
