    take an exponential equation. i.e x equals something to the power of x. We can use a logarithm to solve this. i.e. to find that x

    They can be used to combine multiple log expressions into one. For example \[\log (x+3)-\log(x+5)=10\] \[\log \frac{ x+3 }{ x-5 }=10\] Then you can convert that to an exponential equation and solve fairly easily
