    the base 5 (small 5) is the main number, w.e the expression equals is the exponent, and wat that equals, is ur big 5 :) hope that helps!

    kk, so basically with logarithms, you will have this form \[\log_{a} b = c\] when u want to turn this into exponential form, it becomes, \[a ^{c} =b\] so in this question since, x was ur c, it was a^c = b, in this case, 5 ^x = 5.
