Page 4 - The logarithm of any power of a number is equal to the logarithm of the number multiplied by the exponent of the power.

Page 7 - This process, like its converse (Art. 23), is based upon the supposition that the differences of logarithms are proportional to the differences of their corresponding numbers.

Page 4 - The logarithm of any POWER of a number is equal to the product of the logarithm of the number by the exponent of the power. For let m be any number, and take the equation (Art. 9) M=a*, then, raising both sides to the wth power, we have Mm = (a")m = a"" . Therefore, log (M m) = xm = (log M) X »»12.
