Are you also saying that log(x)/log(b) is the same as written ln(x)/ln(b)? Mr F says: Yes s/he is.
Then I just plug and chug, right? Mr F says: Yes.
Should I then round off the answers to the second or third decimal places? Which one? Mr F says: Impossible to answer. The original question should state what accuracy is required.
