Indeedy it is!

4. Hello, R3ap3r!

$\log_5 326 \;=\;\frac{\log326}{\log5} \;=\;3.595601506 \;\approx\;3.596$

Is this right? . . . . . Right!
You can check your own answer . . .

$\text{If }\log_5326 \:=\:3.596\text{, then: }\:5^{3.596} \:=\:326$ . . . Is this true?

The calculator says: . $5^{3.596} \;=\;326.2091477$ . . . close enough!

For an even better check, use more digits of your answer.

For example, use $3.5956015$

Then:. . $5^{3.5956015} \;=\;325.999997$ . . . . Yes!
