I feel like writing about logarithms. I don't know why, I just do. So shoot me.

There are many number bases, but the one we know and use the most is decimal. There is also binary, hexadecimal, etc.

Mostly we work with a decimal base, i.e. a base of 10. That is the system that is commonly used in most maths.

A logarithm takes a base and a number of that base and gives you the power that the base would need to give the number of that base.

I don't think that's very clear so here's an example.

 Have another one for fun.

There are some rules one abides with logarithms, of course.

Happy logarithming!
