    Are you sure you don't mean g(x) = -log(x) You cannot take the log of a negative number. There is no power of 10 (or e I'm not sure which log you're using here) that will result in a negative number.

    yeah polpak is right lets say g(x) = y y= log(-x) \[10^y= -x \] so whatever values you plug in for x you can never get a y that will satisfy it.

    actually i think you could describe the graph of log(-x) as the reflection of log(x) about the y-axis giving x-intercept of -1 and vertical asymptote at x=0

    lol. Yes sorry. My brain went stupid. I blame the lateness and the lack of sleep. Just because we have log(-x) doesn't mean that x is negative. It just means that _ONLY_ negative values for x will work. The graph will be mirrored across the y axis.
