Inmathematics, thelogarithmof anumberis theexponentto which another fixed value, thebase, must be raised to produce that number. For example, the logarithm of1000to base10is3, because10to the power3is1000(as1000 = 10 × 10 × 10 = 103). More precisely, for any two positivereal numbersbandxwherebis not equal to1, the logarithm ofxtobaseb, denotedlogb(x), is the unique real numberysuch that
by=x.
