Algebra II: Evaluate value of a logarithmic expression
This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra II
 
   
In this section you'll learn how to estimate values of logarithmic expression. Take a quick look at it. The system of common logarithms has 10 as its base.  When the base is not indicated: log 100 = 2, then the system of common logarithms -base 10 - is implied. You know 102 = 100 and its log form is equivalent to log10100 = 2, and similarly 103 = 1000 and its log form is equivalent to log101000 = 3. Therefore, log of any number between 100 and 1000 to base 10 is 2 and 3 and such reasoning is helpful to evaluate the value of logarithmic expressions. For example, log105487 is between 3 and 4. You can say so as
log105487=x
10x=5487
103=1000 & 104=10000. As 5487 lies between 1000 & 10000,so we can say log105487 lies between 3 & 4.
