5.2 LOGARITHMS AND LAWS OF LOGARITHMS
IMPORTANT NOTES:
1. To convert an equation in index form to logarithm form and vice versa. If N = ax , then loga N = x. 2. 3. loga 1 = 0, and loga a = 1. loga (negative number) = undefined. Similarly, loga 0 = undefined. Law of Logarithms: 4.1 loga xy = loga x + loga y 4.2 loga x = loga x – loga y
y

5.

4.

(or) loga (x  y) = loga x – loga y

4.2 loga xm = m loga x 5. Change of Bases of Logarithms: 5.1 loga b =

log c b log c a log b b log b a
=

5.2 loga b = 6.

1 log b a

Equations Involving Logarithms: 6.1 Converting the equation of logarithm to index form, i.e. loga N = x, then N = ax 6.2 Express the left hand side, LHS and the right hand side, RHS, as single logarithm of the same base. Then make the comparison, i.e; (i) loga b = loga c, then b = c. (ii) loga m = logb m, then a = b.
