Introduction to Logarithms Properties
Sal gets to the heart of the matter in this video, clarifying that it's important to understand math "so you can actually apply it in life later on and not have relearn everything every time." True to his word, Sal demonstrates ways to more easily and intuitively solve logs and exponents with several well-explained examples.
