The **LOG** math function returns the natural logarithm of a specified numerical value.

*Syntax:* logarithm = LOG(value)

- Value parameter MUST be greater than 0!
- The natural logarithm is the logarithm to the base
**e**.**e = 2.718282**approximately. - Returns are default SINGLE precision unless the value parameter uses DOUBLE precision.

*Example:* FUNCTION to find the base ten logarithm or a numerical value.

- FUNCTION Log10(value)
- Log10 = LOG(value) / LOG(10#)

- END FUNCTION

*Explanation:* The natural logarithm of the value is divided by the base 10 logarithm. The LOG of ten is designated as a DOUBLE precision return by using # after the 10 value.

*See also:* EXP
