Rewrite the equation as -log(b)=12.
Multiply each term in -log(b)=12 by -1
Multiply each term in -log(b)=12 by -1.
Multiply -1 by -1.
Multiply log(b) by 1.
Multiply 12 by -1.
Rewrite log(b)=-12 in exponential form using the definition of a logarithm. If x and b are positive real numbers and b≠1, then logb(x)=y is equivalent to by=x.
Solve for b
Rewrite the expression using the negative exponent rule b-n=1bn.
Raise 10 to the power of 12.
Rewrite the equation as b=11000000000000.
The result can be shown in multiple forms.
Solve for b 12=- log of b
