Graphing of a logarithmic function

  1. Sep 2, 2011 #1
    I am facing difficulty in graphing this logarithmic function:

    some constant= y + log x

    what all steps are required to graph such a function?

    Solve for y, then use this equation to calculate corresponding y values for a handful of x values.

    thanks chris for your reply,but won't it take time to solve it through this method?

    what i mean is-we know the graph of y=log x
    also,the equation of logarithmic function can be written as:

    some constant-log x= y,but by plotting it through putting various values of x,won't it be time consuming?...can't we simply visualise its graph by knowing how y=logx looks like and then, shifting the graph to the left by that constant value?
