This doesn't work with any other number. The derivation of 10^x is ln 10 . 10^x.<br /><br />So the base is for the exponential function and well, logarithms are the inverse function for exponentials, so it makes sense that the same base will be the main one.Jerryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12365656615818983660noreply@blogger.com
