I'm reading a scientific paper and an equation of the following form appears:
x = y log (z).
I know what y and z are in my own data set. How do I solve for x?
I'm used to logarithms of the form log28, and then I can work out that the base is 2 and hence the answer is 3. How can I go about working out this unfamiliar (to me) form of logarithm? What's the base?
Edit: May as well provide a link to the paper. It's here, and the relevant part is on p264.
