Evaluation of anti-log

Evaluation of anti-log

Evaluation of anti-log


Greetings from England

In my kind of work, log function is very unusual.

I have found that log(number)= works fine - in that answer is correct.

y: 4.601 log(y) = 0.66285

But now I need to evaluate the anti-log...can be easily done on pocket
calculator (via inverse/shift); but how is it done in Mathcad?

By experimentation...

10^log(y) = 4.601 works, but is it correct procedure?; any neater solution?

I use Mathcad 2000.

Or create your own function: alog(x):10^x where "x" would your previous log()

Thanks to IR stuff and Occupant.

IR stuff is quite correct, back to basics.

Occupant has neat solution, I will give that a try.

Help appreciated.
