$$\log_b x=y \implies b^y=x$$ Or, alternatively and equivalently $$b^{\log_b x}=x$$

What v8archie is trying to say is, just take the exponential of both sides. $\displaystyle \log(x) = y \implies x = e^y$ (This is assuming that log means "log with the base e.") Dan Last edited by skipjack; November 8th, 2016 at 03:53 AM.

As exp is the inverse of log, one can remove log from the lefthand side and put exp in the righthand side.
