How do i calculate [tex]log_{10}(1.8)[/tex] ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I dont have a method for this kind of thing... I know that [tex]1.8 = 10^{x} [/tex]

Only thing i know to do is to use trial and error or possibly something akin to Hero's method for calculating roots.

Suggestions? My depth of logic is shallow indeed.
