Hello and welcome to HP Calcs! My name is
Rick and today we will be looking at how to find the log of a number on the Sharp
EL-510 RN calculator. The standard setting for logs on our calculator is log base 10. In order to find the log of a number we will use the second function and 1 buttons. If we want to find the log base 10 of 1000 we would hit second function, 1 To place log on the screen. then enter the number we want to find the log for. In this case 1000. finally we hit the equals button and get the answer 3 which is correct if we want to find a different log base
we would enter it as a fraction. let’s say we want to find the log base 2 of 1,000. We would enter second function log 1000 divided by second function log 2
equals this gives us 9.96578 etc. Which is correct. All right I hope this helps and good luck on those tests!
