The Most Important Property of Logarithms

Won't the other properties be sad to learn that they're not the most important? The 11th installment of a 35-part module is essentially a continuation of the previous instructional activity, using logarithm tables to develop properties. Scholars establish that log(xy) = log(x) + log(y), indicated in the instructional activity as being the most important property of logarithms, and that log(1/x) = –log(x).
