log_{8}60

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

log of 60 to the base 8 is the power to which 8 must be raised to give 60. We solve for x in

60=8^{x}. Taking logs on both sides, their base doesn't matter, we have

log(60)=xlog(8) or that x=log(60)/log(8)

log(60)=xlog(8) or that x=log(60)/log(8)

log 60 ln 60

log

log 8 ln 8

↑ or ↑

base 10 base "e"

log 60 ≈ 1.77815125

log 8 ≈ 0.90309
