In this lesson on logarithms, Professor Perez teaches the change of base formula and its applications. Logarithms can be calculated with different bases using the change of base rule, which allows you to rewrite a quotient of logarithms with the same base. The rule can be applied using different bases, such as base 10 or base e, although some calculations can be done without a calculator. The lesson includes several practice problems and word problems to help you apply the rule.
