Log

Hi, quick question.

Is there a difference in notation when I say :

(log8(x))^2

and

log8(x)^2

Is it different ??? Thank you !

Re: Log

Hi;

The parentheses is not necessary, the log operator has precedence.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.
