Given log10 2=0.30 and log10 3=0.47
How to i express 6 x 10power 14 in logarithm answer.
Please help me.

Thank you.

Hi Emi.

Remember that when you have a logarithm of a product, the value is the same as the sum of the logarithms of the factors. For example,

log10 (2x3) = log10 2 + log10 3


log10 (6 x 1014) = log10 2 + log10 3 + log10 (1014)

Can you solve this now?
