## What are the rules of logarithms?

The rules apply for any logarithm logbx, except that you have to replace any occurence of e with the new base b. The natural log was defined by equations (1) and (2)….Basic rules for logarithms.

Rule or special case | Formula |
---|---|

Quotient | ln(x/y)=ln(x)−ln(y) |

Log of power | ln(xy)=yln(x) |

Log of e | ln(e)=1 |

Log of one | ln(1)=0 |

### What are the 4 laws of logarithms?

Logarithm Rules or Log Rules

- There are four following math logarithm formulas: ● Product Rule Law:
- loga (MN) = loga M + loga N. ● Quotient Rule Law:
- loga (M/N) = loga M – loga N. ● Power Rule Law:
- IogaMn = n Ioga M. ● Change of base Rule Law:

#### What is a logarithm easy explanation?

A logarithm is the power to which a number must be raised in order to get some other number (see Section 3 of this Math Review for more about exponents). For example, the base ten logarithm of 100 is 2, because ten raised to the power of two is 100: log 100 = 2. because. 102 = 100.

**How do we use logarithms in real life?**

Much of the power of logarithms is their usefulness in solving exponential equations. Some examples of this include sound (decibel measures), earthquakes (Richter scale), the brightness of stars, and chemistry (pH balance, a measure of acidity and alkalinity).

**Can you cancel out logarithms?**

To rid an equation of logarithms, raise both sides to the same exponent as the base of the logarithms. In equations with mixed terms, collect all the logarithms on one side and simplify first.
