Page 5 - If the number is less than 1, make the characteristic of the logarithm negative, and one unit more than the number of zeros between the decimal point and the first significant figure of the given number.
Page 17 - Any positive number being selected as a base, the logarithm of any other positive number is the exponent of the power to which the base must be raised to produce the given number. Thus, if a
