#1**+2 **

Hi.

Logarithmic functions are the inverse of exponents, which means...

an exponent, say a^b, is b number of a's multiplied together.

On the other hand.

Log_{a} (b) is asking a to the what power is b?

So we are solving for x where a^x = b.

Thus, say, log. base 10(this is the "a") of 1000, is 10^x = 1000, x = 3.

Log_{2} (8) = 3.

If you don't understand anything feel free to ask!
