  1. 1. LOGARITHMS BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  2. 2. INDICES  Any expression written as an is defined as the variable a raised to the power of the number n  n is called a power, an index or an exponent of a  Example - where n is a positive whole number, a1 = a a2 = a  a a3 = a  a  a an = a  a  a  a……n times
  3. 3. INDICES SATISFY THE FOLLOWING RULES  an = a  a  a  a……n times e.g. 23 = 2  2  2 = 8  Negative powers….. a-n = e.g. a-2 = e.g. where a = 2 2-1 = or 2-2 = n a 1 2 1 a 2 1 4 1 22 1  
  4. 4.  A Zero power a0 = 1 e.g. 80 = 1  A Fractional power e.g. n aa n  1 3999 22 1  288 33 1 
  5. 5. ALL INDICES SATISFY THE FOLLOWING RULES IN MATHEMATICAL APPLICATIONS Rule 1 am. an = am+n e.g. 22 . 23 = 25 = 32 e.g. 51 . 51 = 52 = 25 e.g. 51 . 50 = 51 = 5 Rule 2 nm n m a a a   822 2 2 2 222 2 2 1 303 0 3 123 2 3     .. .. ge ge
  6. 6. Rule 3 (am )n = am.n e.g. (23 )2 = 26 = 64 Rule 4 an . bn = (ab)n e.g. 32  42 = (34)2 = 122 = 144 Likewise, n b a nb na        if b0 e.g. 42 3 6 3 6 2 2 2 2       
  7. 7. SIMPLIFY THE FOLLOWING USING THE ABOVE RULES: 1) b = x1/4  x3/4 2) b = x2  x3/2 3) b = (x3/4 )8 4) b = yx yx 4 32 These are practice questions for you to try at home!
  8. 8. LOGARITHMS A Logarithm is a mirror image of an index If m = b n then logbm = n The log of m to base b is n If y = xn then n = logx y The log of y to the base x is n e.g. 1000 = 103 then 3 = log10 1000 0.01 = 10-2 then –2 = log10 0.01
  9. 9. EVALUATE THE FOLLOWING: 1) x = log39 the log of m to base b = n then m = bn the log of 9 to base 3 = x then  9 = 3x  9 = 3  3 = 32  x = 2 2) x = log42 the log of m to base b = n then m = bn the log of 2 to base 4 = x then  2 = 4x  2 = 4 = 41/2 x = 1/2
  10. 10. THE FOLLOWING RULES OF LOGS APPLY 1) logb(x  y) = logb x + logb y eg.   3232 101010 logloglog  2) logb       y x = logb x – logb y eg. 23 2 3 101010 logloglog       3) logb xm = m. logb x e.g. 323 10 2 10 loglog 
  11. 11.

PRACTICE PROBLEMS Q6: Without using log tables, find x if 1 2 log10(11 + 4 7) = log10(2 + 𝑥) Q7: Show that log 𝑏 𝑎 log 𝑐 𝑏 log 𝑑 𝑐 log 𝑎 𝑑 = 1 Q8: Show that log3 1 + 1 3 + log3 1 + 1 4 + log3 1 + 1 5 + …… + log3 1 + 1 3 = 4 Q9: Show that 7 log 16 15 + 5 log 25 24 + 3 log 81 80 = log 2 Q10: Find the value of log 27 : log 8 ;log 125 log 6 ;log 5 Q11: Find the value of log3 729. 9;1 27;4/334 BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  13. 13. FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES - LOGARITHMS  Product Formula: loga 𝑚𝑛 = loga 𝑚 + loga 𝑛  Quotient Formula: loga(𝑚/𝑛) = loga 𝑚 + loga 𝑛  Power Formula: loga 𝑚 𝑛 = n loga 𝑚  Base Change Formula: logn 𝑚 = loga 𝑚 / loga 𝑛 BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  14. 14. FROM THE ABOVE RULES, IT FOLLOWS THAT (1) logb 1 = 0 (since => 1 = bx , hence x must=0) e.g. log101=0 and therefore, logb  x 1 = - logb x e.g. log10 (1 /3) = - log103 11 )
  15. 15. AND…….. (2) logb b = 1 (since => b = bx , hence x must = 1) e.g. log10 10 = 1 (3) logb  n x = n 1 logb x 1 )
  16. 16. APPLICATION OF LOGARITHMS  Useful in complicated calculations  Useful in calculation of compound interest  Useful in calculation of population growth  Useful in calculation of depreciation value BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  17. 17. LOG TABLES  The logarithm of a number consists of two parts, the whole part or the integral part is called the characteristic and the decimal part is called the mantissa.  The characteristic can be known by inspection, the mantissa has to be obtained from logarithmic table  BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  18. 18. CHARACTERISTIC  The characteristic of the logarithm of any number greater than 1 is positive and is one less than the number of digits to the left of decimal in the given number.  The characteristic of the logarithm of any number less than 1 is negative and is one more than the number of zeroes to the right of decimal in the given number.  If there is no zero, then characteristic will be – 1. BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE Number Characteristic 9.40 0 81 1 234.5 2 12345 4 0.7 – 1 0.03 – 2 0.007756 – 3
  19. 19. MANTISSA  The mantissa is the fractional part of the logarithm of a given number and worked out through log tables BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE Number Mantissa Logarithm Log 8509 ……. .9299 3.9299 Log 850.9 ……. .9299 2.9299 Log 85.09 ……. .9299 1.9299 Log 8.509 ……. .9299 0.9299 Log 0.8509 ……. .9299 1.9299 Log 0.08509 ……. .9299 2.9299 Log 0.008509 ……. .9299 3.9299
  20. 20. KEY TO REMEMBER  In the common system of logarithms, the characteristic of the logarithm may be positive or negative but the mantissa is always positive.  A negative mantissa must be converted into a positive mantissa before reference to logarithm table.  Ex: – 2.6278 = – 3 + (3 – 2.6278) = 3.3722 BirinderSingh,AssistantProfessor,PCTE
  21. 21. A NOTE OF CAUTION:  All logs must be to the same base in applying the rules and solving for values  The most common base for logarithms are logs to the base 10, or logs to the base e (e = 2.718281…)  Logs to the base e are called Natural Logarithms  logex = ln x  If y = exp(x) = ex then loge y = x or ln y = x
  22. 22. ANTILOGARITHMS (AL)  The process of finding the antilog of a given logarithm is just the reverse of the procedure for finding the logarithm of a given number  For finding the anti log of a log, only mantissa is used for consulting the table.
