    # a logarithm là gì - Nghĩa của từ a logarithm

#### a logarithm có nghĩa là

When our primitive instinct makes us treat the comparison of large numbers as logarithmic rather than linear—for instance, we feel like the gap between a trillion and a billion is the same as that between a billion and a million, because both are a thousand times bigger, when the jump to a trillion is really much bigger.

#### Example

When young children are asked which number is halfway between one and nine, their answers are three instead of five, as given by those with formal schooling. Is this a case of logarithmic instinct, where the middle is in relation to multiplication rather than addition: 1 × 3 = 3, 3 × 3 = 9?

#### a logarithm có nghĩa là

mathmatical process by which a shit/corn ratio is aquired. it is devised from taking the amount of corn in your shit and dividing it by the total mass of your log, including water content and multiplying by 100. is expressed in units called nibblets. my corn ratio is 22 niblets some days.

#### Example

shannon- hey i am eating corn
tim- maybe you will shit some out
dan- ill get my calculator so we can logarithm afterwards.

mathematical process by which an exponent is acquired

The most crappy (C-RRRR-AAAA-P-EEEE) subject in the world. Logarithms tell how many times a number x must be divided by the base b to get 1, and hence can be considered an inverse of exponentiation. Yeah, whatever!

#### Example

Me: I have been trying to understand this logarithm crap with its shitty tables for the past seven weeks.

He: Yuck!

The logarithmic G scale is used to measure the overall influence, and the ability to influence, of an individual in society. The influence is measured as an absolute value of influence, that is, it doesn't differentiate between positive or negative influence. The 1G base is used to describe any accomplished individual such as a doctor, lawyer, police captain, army major, university professor, capo.

#### Example

Steve jobs is a 3.7 G in the logarithmic G scale.
George W Bush is a 4.0 G.
Bill Clinton 3.3 G. (+ .3 for Monica Lewinsky incident)
Larry Page 2.7 G
David Suzuki 1.8 G
Al Gore 1.9 G
Rupert Murdoch 5.0 G

A process of first aid used to help someone who has tripped over a log.

#### Example

"Oh no I tripped over a log 4 to the base 10!"

"Quickly use the logarithm technique!"

#### a logarithm có nghĩa là

(MATHEMATICS) a function of numbers that are the root of a base. For example, log(base 2) means a function of numbers that are the numbered roots of 2. The log(base 2) of 2 is 1, meaning 2 raised to the power of 1 is 2 (2^1 = 2); log(2) of 4 is 2, and so on. The idea here is that any number can be expressed as 2 raised to some power; better still, if you do math with the logs of a number rather than the numbers themselves, you can find useful patterns. For example, if you are graphing population growth, and you just plot the raw number of people over time, you aren't going to notice anything in particular. If you plot the log of population, you can see that, while population is growing, the rate of growth is falling. Usually, if you are doing statistical research with numbers that always have to be positive (like population, death tolls from diseases, etc.), you need to use logarithms for the numerical values in order to represent a confidence interval. Logs usually have a base of e or 10. Logs with a base of e are called natural logs.

#### Example

A logarithm is the inverse of an exponential function.

MATHEMATICS: The exponent, or power, to which 10 has to be raised to express any positive real number. Logarithm is derived from Greek logos "reckoning, ratio," and arithmos "number."

#### Example

Since I can't make a nice table, let's use the following format: Base, Exponent, Expression, Result such that in line 1, Base = 10, Exponent = -3, Expression = 10^-3, Result = 0.001. We obtain, 10, -3,10^-3, 0.001 (or 1/1000) (line 1) 10, -2, 10^-2, 0.01 (or 1/100) 10, -1, 10^-1, 0.1 (or 1/10) 10, 0, 10^0, 1 10, 1, 10^1, 10 10, 2, 10^2, 100 (10 squared) 10, 3, 10^3, 1,000 (10 cubed) And so forth. Any positive real number can be expressed as the product of 10 raised to any real number; for example 100,000 can be written as 100 x 1000 = 10^2 x 10^3 = 10^5. Notice that the exponents are additive. It is easy to show that for division the exponents subtract. Before the advent of hand-held electronic calculators, logarithms and the use of log tables reduced calculating time by converting long-hand multiplication into an addition process and long-hand division into a subtraction process where the result was accurate to three significant figures. One would just look up the logarithms of two or more numbers that were being multiplied, sum the logarithms, and then look up the corresponding number. Another benefit of using logarithms is that curvilinear data points can be converted into linear data points, and the latter is easier to model with a first-order equation derived using either graph paper or linear regression analysis.

a "Todd-ism" - Todd says "a logarithm" (log-ar-ithm, something that a rocket scientist uses) when he means "algorithm" (Al-Gore-ithm, something that a computer scientist uses and Al Gore abuses)

#### Example

Google has just patented another search "a logarithm".

Easy but ugly. Much like some girls I know. It's an important part of Calculus 1, used for taking the derivative of functions with "x" in the exponent.

#### Example

Man, that girl from Calc class is like using logarithmic differentiation
