- TL;DR Summary
- Does it make any sense to say: ln to the base 2?

Hi,

I tutor maths to High School students.

I had a question today that I was unsure of. Can the natural log be to the base 2?

The student brought the question to me from their maths exam where the question was: Differentiate ln(base2) x^2

If the natural log is the inverse of e then how does the natural log to the base 2 make any sense?

Thanks for any help on this.
