Changing Bases of Logarithms

 Main Concept Let $a,b,c>0$ with $b,c\ne 1$. Then we have the following change of base rule:   ${log}_{b}\left(a\right)=\frac{{log}_{c}\left(a\right)}{{log}_{c}\left(b\right)}$

Enter two bases, $b$ and $c$. Click Show Plot to see the graphs of ${\mathrm{log}}_{b}\left(x\right)$ and ${\mathrm{log}}_{c}\left(x\right)$ along with the ratio $\frac{{\mathrm{log}}_{c}\left(x\right)}{{\mathrm{log}}_{b}\left(x\right)}\mathit{=}{\mathrm{log}}_{c}\left(b\right)$.

 $b=$ $c=$
