    Log base x

    How do you solve for a log base x. I know how to change it to exponential but what is the next step. Thank You!

    Difficult to tell what you are asking, but maybe you need the log base
    change formula:

    log_a(x)=log_b(x)/log_b(a)

    where log_a denote log to the base a, and log_b denote log to the base b.
