gives the base-10 logarithm of x.
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • Log10 gives exact rational number results when possible.
  • For certain special arguments, Log10 automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • Log10 can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • Log10 automatically threads over lists.
