Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.110=log x can u convert this in exponential form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so what do you get in the equation when you plug \(\rm y = 10\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010 = log x x = 10^10 you raise both powers to whatever the base of the log is to get rid of the log

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then it will be one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, x does not equal 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whenever you have such a form, then I prefer the exponential form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@ParthKohli if x and y were reversed, this would be true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@latremese40 Let me show you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you do log(1) you dont get 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\rm 10 = \log (x)\]Right? But here, the base is 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so raise both sides to the 10th power to get rid of the log with base 10

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\rm 10 = \log_{10}(x)\]Do you know what the exponential form is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the exponential form \(\huge if, a=log x\implies x=10^a \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what will be 10=log x ?

latremese40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but its y=logx then you get 10^x x=1 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@latremese40 Let's do something clever.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when y=10, u get 10=log x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's first solve for \(\rm x\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@ParthKohli if you plug in 1 for x you dont get 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how bout @parthkohli inbx me cuz im getin confused

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\rm y = \log_{10}x \]So,\[\rm 10^y = x\]Right?

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now if you have y = 10, then you have\[\rm 10^{10} =x \]Got my point?

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And that's your answer! If you prefer the numeric notation, then add ten zeroes in front of 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry for the confusion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oka... its cool hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im still confused...how is x=1 like you said earlier?

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@etemplin: That answer was out of confusion, so don't mind it. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wow that makes sense now. so x = 10^10 right? just making sure
