The logarithm of a number is the exponent by which another fixed value, the base, has to be raised to produce that number. For example, the logarithm of 1000 to base 10 is 3, because 1000 is 10 to the power 3: 1000 = 103 = 10 × 10 × 10. More generally, if x = by, then y is the logarithm of x to base b, and is written logb(x), solog10(1000) = 3.
whenever... we have to perform calculations to powers... we use a predefined function... and that function is named as LOGARITHM...
yes .... m karthik.. @rushi-wikipedia , It was a Good explanation...
