## Appendix N: Derivation of the Logarithm Change of Base Formula

We set out to prove the logarithm change of base formula: logb x = loga x loga b. To do so we let y = logb x and apply these as exponents on the base.

## MATHEMATICS 0110A CHANGE OF BASE Suppose that we have

Let y = logb a. Then we know that this means that by = a. We can take logarithms to base c

## Lesson 5-2 - Using Properties and the Change of Base Formula

You can prove the Change of Base. Formula blog X x because exponents and logarithms are inverses. Take the log base a of both sides: log

## Elementary Functions The logarithm as an inverse function

The positive constant b is called the base (of the logarithm.) Smith (SHSU) Let's call this the “change of base” equation or “change of base” property.
