# How To: Solve logarithmic equations

In this video the instructor shows how to solve logarithmic equations. To solve a logarithmic equation, the first thing you have to do is try to get one logarithmic term if possible. To subtract two logarithmic terms use the formula Log (a) – Log (b) = Log (a/b). Now to get rid of logs, perform exponentiation of the base. Exponentiation of the base is raising a number to the power of the logarithmic term where the number is the base of the logarithmic term. Here the value turns out to be the number we are trying to calculate the logarithm in the first place as shown in this video. This video shows how to solve logarithmic equations by exponentiation.
