it just say x

10=log x can u convert this in exponential form?
 2 years ago

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

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes @hartnn

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
10 = log x x = 10^10 you raise both powers to whatever the base of the log is to get rid of the log

so then it will be one?

@latremese40 Yes!

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

thank you @Parthkohli

Whenever you have such a form, then I prefer the exponential form.

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

@latremese40 You're welcome :)

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
how @hartnn

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

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
if you do log(1) you dont get 10
 2 years ago

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

oka Parthkohli
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so raise both sides to the 10th power to get rid of the log with base 10
 2 years ago

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

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the exponential form \(\huge if, a=log x\implies x=10^a \)
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so what will be 10=log x ?
 2 years ago

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but its y=logx then you get 10^x x=1 right?
 2 years ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@latremese40 Let's do something clever.
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
when y=10, u get 10=log x
 2 years ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Let's first solve for \(\rm x\).
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@ParthKohli if you plug in 1 for x you dont get 10
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and u get x=10^y

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
how bout @parthkohli inbx me cuz im getin confused
 2 years ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\rm y = \log_{10}x \]So,\[\rm 10^y = x\]Right?
 2 years ago

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

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes i do
 2 years ago

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

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sorry for the confusion.

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oka... its cool hartnn
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
im still confused...how is x=1 like you said earlier?
 2 years ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@etemplin: That answer was out of confusion, so don't mind it. :)
 2 years ago

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