Sorry but I love full explanations, because then I can use it in general math, maybe even calculator. Thank you so much for untying this knot in my math knowledge, I’ve always wondered what is log. Well I think I would understand better if you explained what it was

Thats a very good question that would take far too long in a post to explain. The simple answer is that when you log somethings you are turning into a power of the log. For example if you took the log 10 of 100 you would get 2 because 10^2 is 100. Log 2 of 16 would be 4 becasue 2^4 is 16
