Why I am getting log(12) value as 2.484907 in my R console. Can some one please assist me. This might be a silly question but eager to know





Because this log is to the base of e(natural log) and i think what you expect is base 10.

Hope this helps.



log(12) — Expoential Log Value
[1] 2.484907

log10(12) – Base 10 Value
[1] 1.079181

Choose what you want to find and use function accordingly as aforementioned.


Thank you NSS and Arihant. I got it now
