Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to evaluate a simple natural logarithm in two different ways. The first method involves bringing the exponent in front of the logarithm and multiplying it by the number before the logarithm. The second method involves recognizing that ln of e is equal to one and simplifying the expression accordingly. By following these methods, we can evaluate logarithms without using a calculator.

Evaluating a simple natural logarithm

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.
