Anti-log (-0.06) = x

Anti-log (0.03012) = x

Hi puzzled,

Are you using a calculator or tables? Calculator, I hope.

The**antilogarithm**function is another name for the inverse of the logarithmic function. It is written $\displaystyle antilog_b(n)$ and means the same as $\displaystyle b^n$.

Example:

$\displaystyle log_{10} 100 = 2$

$\displaystyle antilog (2) = 10^2$

So,

$\displaystyle antilog (-0.06)=10^{-0.06}$

$\displaystyle antilog (0.03012)=10^{0.03012}$

Edit: And as always, Skeeter gets it done in fewer words!
