Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve equations containing common logs and natural logs, ln. We are given five problems to solve, with the directions to find an exact solution and an approximation to four decimal places. We learn that the log of x is the same as the log of x base 10, and the natural log of x is the log of x base E. By the end of the lesson, we gain practice with calculations using logs and natural logs.

Lesson Description:
