Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If base ten, then what is the exponent on 10 that would make the power = 0.001?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know you can rewrite 0.001 as an exponent right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.001 = 1/1000, what is 1000 as a power of ten?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. so if you have log w/ 1/1000 how do you evaluate that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will reask my first question: "what is the exponent on 10 that would make the power = 0.001?"

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah but exponets and logarithms are exponents of each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Logarithms *are* exponents.

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know your logarithm properties?
