...therefore by adding the logarithm of 5 to that of 7. Since moreover the logarithm of a fraction will be **equal to the logarithm of the numerator minus the logarithm of the denominator,** it will be sufficient to place in the tables the logarithms of entire numbers. 216. If in the equation... | |
