Exponential Form of a Logarithm The exponential form of a logarithm is the
exponential equality the corresponds to a logarithmic equality. For Example: The logarithmic equality has, as an exponential form, . In general: For a logarithmic equality , the exponential form is .
Base (of a logarithm The base of a logarithm is the value of the base of the
exponential that the logarithm is the inverse of. For Example: Log with a base of is written and is the function that represents the
inverse of the exponential with the base 4, eg . Thus .
Argument (of a log) The argument of a log is the contents inside the log, which is the
value of the exponential that you are trying to invert. For Example: The expression has an argument of .
