Math question, loosely related to python... The python "Think Like a Computer Scientist" pdf tutorial assumes you have a familiarity with logarithmic equations and whatever sin stands for (will look into that next). I never learned this stuff. I understand some of the basic mechanics here, like that a log is sort of a reverse exponent. I can do a simple equation like finding the log of 36 with a base of 6. But I don't get why the logarithm of 1 is always equal to 0

why is the log of 1 with a base of 8 equal to 0 rather than 1/8 ??
How does that make sense?

(8 *1) /8 = 1/8 or 0.125 so 0.125 * 8 = 1
Didn't I just equate the logarithm of 1 with a base of 8??
