Convert the following to logarithmic form.

8 ^{4} = 4096

Convert the following to exponential form.

Note that a log is just an exponent.....for instance, if I had the following....

log_{4} 16 ....this is just asking us...."What power do I need to put on 4 to raise it to 16??"

And the answer is 2 because 4^{2} = 16......so thinking "backwards"...we have

8^{ 4} = 4096 So to write this in log form, we have

Log_{8} 4096 = 4 .....Note .....4 is the power that I put on 8 to raise it to 4096

Does that make sense???
