?

2. anonymous

$e\log(e)$ $e\log_e$ what base is the log?

3. anonymous

elog(e)

4. anonymous

if it is log base e then then answer is e

5. anonymous

why is that?

6. anonymous

since $\log_e(e)=1$

7. anonymous

if it is log base ten then there is nothing to simplify

8. anonymous

often $\log_e(x)$ is written as $\ln(x)$so i was not sure

9. anonymous

so if loge(e) =1 how did you get e as your answer

10. anonymous

oh sorry for the confusion satellite

11. anonymous

oh i thought you wrote $e\log(e)$

12. anonymous

yes i did write elog(e)

13. anonymous

which if the base of the log was e would be $e\times 1=e$ i am not sure what that e is doing out front. did you mean that as the base?

14. anonymous

oh no thats correct now

15. anonymous

ok then if the log means log base e, the answer is e times 1 equals e
