Here is an example   (base 10 )

 

47=10^1.67209

 

So the log of 47   is  1.67209

A logarithm is a way to show the exponent for a base that equals a number.

 

For example, \((log_28=3) = (2^3=8)\) 

The little number under the log is the base of the exponent.

The number next to the little number is the answer to the exponent.

The answer of log is the exponent.

 

I can draw pictures of it later if you still need assistance.
