of lowest degree, that is divisible by each denominator.

A measure of

A line is a
set of points in the plane satisfying an equation of the form
ax+by+c = 0 , where a, b, & c are any constants; and
a and b are not both zero. The equation
of a non-vertical line has the following equivalent forms:
Slope-intercept form: y = mx + b , has
slope m and cuts the y-axis at point (0,b)
Point-slope form: , has slope m passing
through point .
Intercept-form: , intercept on x-axis at (a,0)
and the y-axis at(0,b)
of a line.
the log to the base b of x, is the function which associates
to each positive number x, the corresponding exponent y
which is equivalent to ,
i.e., the log to the base b of x is the exponent to which b must
be raised in order to obtain x and thus we have
Logarithmic functions obey certain rules:
The log to the base 10 is called common logarithm and is written
The log to the base e (2.71828182...) is called natural logarithm
and is written as .
