3.3 Logarithm Laws [Free]

The Logarithm Function’s Algebraic Properties

  • There are four properties in logarithms to consider:

i) \log_{a}{mn}=\log_{a}{m}=\log_{a}{n}

ii) log_{a}{(\frac{m}{n})}=\log_{a}{m}-\log_{a}{n}

iii) log_{a}{(m^{p})}=p\cdot{\log_{a}{m}}

In particular when p=-1, we have log_{a}{(\frac{1}{m})}=-\log_{a}{m}
