Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to evaluate a natural logarithm given a root. The key takeaway is that we don't have to deal with logarithms as radicals since we can transfer all radicals to powers or exponents. The properties of logarithm, such as bringing the number in front and recognizing that ln of e is always equal to one, help us evaluate this problem without using a calculator.

Evaluating a natural logarithm when given a root

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
