     How to find Logarithm of Number to the base N in PHP.

 
				

The logarithm is the inverse function to exponentiation.

In by = x, Then base b logarithm of a number X is given by logbX.

The logarithm to base 10 when base b = 10, is called the common logarithm and The natural logarithm when base b = e (≈ 2.718).


To find log in PHP we have a direct log function : log(number, base). For example if we have to find a log of 125 to base 3, just call log function with log(125, 3) .

Use this example Log X calculator to calculate Logarithm of a Number.
