A logarithm is written like this: logab It is asking: 'How many a's must be multiplied together to get b?' or 'To what power must a be raised to get b?' Those questions are normally impossible to answer if a is zero or one, because these numbers remain the same no matter what the power. If a is negative, then the need to introduce imaginary and complex numbers will arise.

How do you find a logarithm from a table?

You look the number up in a table.Example:Find the logarithm of 511From a table I see that numbers are only listed from 1.00 to 9.99I look up 5.11 and know that I have to multiply that by 100 or 102 to get my original value, which is equivalent to adding 2 to the table value.The table gives me 0.7084209 for the logarithm for 5.11The logarithm of 511 is thus 2.7084209For numbers less than 1 the logarithm will be negative!Negative numbers do have logarithms!
