base e?

it's like 25 at the base 1/log 25

so like: $\displaystyle \frac{1}{Log_{25} 25} $ ?

Well what do you know about $\displaystyle Log_x x = y $

It's the same as: $\displaystyle x^y = x $ which implies x = 1. - Oct 18th 2008, 06:42 PM11rdc11

but the base is not 25 ...there's nothing so i guess the base should be 10

In my country if there's no base, the base is taken to be e. But I'm aware that in other countries it's taken to be 10.

If it was 10 the answer would be $\displaystyle \frac{1}{1.398} $

However if it was e, the answer would be $\displaystyle \frac{1}{3.219} $

to 3 decimal places. - Oct 18th 2008, 07:10 PM11rdc11

I think 125 but I'm still confused as to how the prob looks like
