Question Logarithm syntax what does ^3log(27) mean?

From my exercise book the book wants me to calculate $\displaystyle \displaystyle ^3\log 27$, but I don't know what this syntax means? Is it the same as $\displaystyle \displaystyle \log_3 27$?

$^3log(27)$ does not mean anything. I suspect that was a typographical error and that, as you suggest, $log_3(27)$ was intended. That is, of course,, equal to 3.
