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.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
