Can logarithms have negative answers?

  • Algebra -

    If you mean ln (x) = negative number, yes, they can.
    If you mean ln (negative number) = y, no it's not possible. If you plot ln x, the plot is asymptotic to y-axis from the right (positive values of x only), therefore the plot will never reach x equal to zero nor the negative values.

    hope that's clear ^^;
