IntegerLength

IntegerLength[n]

gives the number of digits in the base 10 representation of the integer n.

IntegerLength[n,b]

gives the number of digits in the base b representation of n.

Details

  • Integer mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • IntegerLength[n,b] is effectively an efficient version of Floor[Log[b,n]]+1.
  • IntegerLength ignores the sign of n.
  • IntegerLength automatically threads over lists.
