If base ten, then what is the exponent on 10 that would make the power = 0.001?

You know you can rewrite 0.001 as an exponent right?

0.001 = 1/1000, what is 1000 as a power of ten?

CliffSedgeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Great, but since it is in the denominator, 1/1000 = 10^3.

Does that make sense?

yes. so if you have log w/ 1/1000 how do you evaluate that ?

I will reask my first question: "what is the exponent on 10 that would make the power = 0.001?"

TresagBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
this is a different problem I'm asking about

Yeah but exponets and logarithms are exponents of each other.

CliffSedgeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Logarithms *are* exponents.
 one year ago

CliffSedgeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
The logarithm tells you (or asks you, if a variable is involved) what the exponent is.

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So as @CliffSedge said 0.001 is the same as 10^ 3 .

Do you know your logarithm properties?
