What's the fastest way to find Anti Logarithms(not using interpolation or a log table)
can anyone give me an example using any kind of value? (preferably solving triangles)
Use your scientific calculator
the operations of log and 10^x , which should be found on your calculator, are inverses of each other
suppose you want log 35.5
on mine the key strokes are as follows:
to get 1.55022...
Now you want antilog 1.55022
which is really just 10^1.55022...
so you could use the y^x key
to get back the 35.5
to get 35.499999.... (which is 35.5 for all practical purposes)
practise the above using some different values.
