Alright so my problem is if I don't see exactly how things work (in math) I can't use them. Like what I mean is some people use memorization and other methods but I really need to understand things deep down to be successful.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So my problem is, I have trouble understanding logarithms. Now I haven't gotten to natural logs and stuff, but I have gone over the more basic rules. Unfortunately I have no idea why they work. For example why is logab = loga+logb. Now this kinda goes for all the rules I know, I can use them and apply them but I have no idea what makes them function. If there is anyway to maybe prove them, that would be fantastic.
