In PS1 Problem 2 I am having trouble using log in python. I entered from math import * at the top of my code then i only have print log(2) for the rest. It is giving me the number 0.69314718056 which i believe to be incorrect. I believe the correct answer to be 0.301029996. Why am I not getting this answer?

no, it's correct. log means log base e unless you specify. 0.30... is for base 10!
