Expert Answer:

The Log of a number is the exponent by which another fixed value, the base, has to be raised to produce that number. For example, the logarithm of 1000 to base 10 is 3, because 1000 is 10 to the power 3: 1000 = 103 = 10?×?10?×?10. More generally, if x = by, then y is the logarithm of x to base b, and is written logb(x), so log10(1000) = 3.
The principle behind the log table is the following propertry of logarithm
log (xy)= log x+log y
