What a Logarithm is.

In mathematics, the logarithm of a number to a given base is the exponent to which the base must be raised to give that number.

For example, the logarithm of 1000 to the base 10 is 3, because 10 raised to the power of 3 is 1000; the base 2 logarithm of 32 is 5 because 2 to the power 5 is 32.

The logarithm of *x* to the base *b* is written log_{b}(*x*).
