### What is Logarithm?

When you are performing complex mathematical problems, there are a few functions that are mandatory to understand for easier calculations. One of those functions is the logarithm. A logarithm is a power to which any number needs to be raised in order to get another number. For instance, the base-ten logs of 100 are 2 because ten with the power 2 becomes 100. logā”100=2
This particular calculation is called the base-ten logarithm. If you consider the base unit algorithm, the base unit is the number being raised to a power. Let us consider an example where the base two logs of eight are three since two raised to the power three is equal to 9.

log_{2} 8 = 3
