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

    e.g
    suppose you want log 35.5

    on mine the key strokes are as follows:
    log
    35.5
    =
    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
    such as
    10
    y^x
    1.55022...
    =
    to get back the 35.5

    or

    2ndF
    log
    1.55022...
    =
    to get 35.499999.... (which is 35.5 for all practical purposes)

    practise the above using some different values.
