    the the exponent of the log can come out the front \[5^{log(5)^{25}}=5^{25(log(5)}\]

    yes, they can be a bit tricky at first think about small numbers first the definition as I like to give it:\[\huge\log_ax=b\text{ if }a^b=x\]in other words\[\large \log_ax\]asks "what power do we raise a to in order to get x?" for example...

  39. TuringTest
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    in general we have\[\huge\log_a(x)=y\iff a^y=x\]so yes, that means always you could say that the question is on the left: "a to what power equals x?" the answer is on the right "a to the y equals x"

    the question is "10 to what power equals 10000" you are asserting that\[\large10^{1000}=10000\]which I dont think you believe what is\[10^2\] ?

    \[10^2=10\cdot10=100\]\[10^3=10\cdot10\cdot10=1000\]the exponent on the ten is the number of zeros after the one so 10 to what power equals 10000 ?

    when you start using that things will be easier \[\large \log(ab)=\log a+\log b\text{ because }x^a\cdot x^b=x^{a+b}\]for example it takes a bit to get used to those ideas though

    I'm glad, it helps me! and in general\[\log_aa=1\]now look at\[\log_2(16)\]if we factor 16 we get\[\log_2(2^4)\]now apply the third rule\[4\log_2(2)=4(1)=4\]so we get the answer we already knew it also shows that\[\log_aa^x=x\]which is nice to know that's how I did your earlier problem) so by factoring and using these rules we can break down lots of numbers with logs

    now here's the last grand example\[\log_2(24)=\log_2(2^3\cdot3)\]using the first rule\[\log_2(2^3)+\log_23\]and now the third\[3\log_2(2)+\log_23=3+\log_23\]and that's as far as it goes
