ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
log base = ?
 one year ago

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it just say x
 one year ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
10=log x can u convert this in exponential form?
 one year ago

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

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

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

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what u get?
 one year ago

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so then it will be one?

People, why don't you just help her?
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@latremese40 Yes!
 one year ago

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

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
thank you @Parthkohli
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Whenever you have such a form, then I prefer the exponential form.
 one year ago

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

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@latremese40 You're welcome :)
 one year ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
x = 10^10
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

latremese40 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oka Parthkohli
 one year 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
 one year 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?
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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