I'm very new to logarithm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've got homework to solve a ques using logarithm i.e multipication of 9356 by 0.396. And i've done it in following manner

9356*0.396

=log 9356 + log 0.396

=3.9711-1.4023

=2.5688

I know i've done it in a wrong manner as the ans is wrong. I'm very new to it. I just know how to see logarithmic table and know basic formulae only. I just want to know the procedure to do such questions
