    Antilogs!

    How can I evaluate:
    Anti-log (-0.06) = x
    Anti-log (0.03012) = x

    assuming base 10 ...

    x = 10^{-0.06}

    x = 10^{0.03012}

    get out your calculator

    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 antilog_b(n) and means the same as b^n.

    Example:

    log_{10} 100 = 2

    antilog (2) = 10^2

    So,

    antilog (-0.06)=10^{-0.06}

    antilog (0.03012)=10^{0.03012}

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