Mathematical logs, or logarithmic equations, are easiest to solve by rewriting or stating the equations as exponents and then solving for the variable. This is because logarithms are the mathematical opposite of exponents or exponential equations.
Continue ReadingJust as subtraction is the mathematical "opposite" of addition, logs are the "opposite" of exponents. In other words, they undo or inverse an exponential equation. For this reason, many people find it easy to think of logs in terms of their relationship to exponents. There are two basic ways in which to translate logs into exponents, by reading the logs as exponents and by using a formula to convert them into exponential equations
