Some basic property of log you will be required before you use log for calculations.They are as follows1.
2.

3.4.5.Remember when ever no base is mentioned take it as 10.Now first I will show how to do it with an exampleQ1.Or convert into scientific formNow take log

y
= + +
by the third property
loglog3.456log2.34323
y
= + +
by the forth propertyNow we will have to see log table to find the valuesSo this is the way to see log table

1. First select the first two digits (here 34) in the first column.2. Then search for next digit(5) in the first row .and note down the number asshown below.3. Now search the last digit(6) in the right hand side row.And note thenumber corresponding to the row found in the first step.Remember for y=log a where a<10 so y<1.The value of log3.456=0.5378 + 0.0008=0.5386

Similarly the value of log2.3432=0.3698Log10=1 by fourth propertyLogy=0.5386+0.3698+3Logy=0.9084+3Now we will have to take anti logAnti log of an integer x is
10
x
Anti log of 3 is
3
10
Anti log of the decimal part can be found out from the anti log table in thesame way as done to find out log
