I was crunching through some logarithm questions for homework when I noticed this. I was wondering if any of you have any incite on what causes these two numbers to be exactly 1 unit apart from each other. I found it very odd, and I am wondering if there is some kind of relation here that I am not aware of. Get back to me when you can.

$$\log_3(6) = \log_3(3 \times 2) = \log_3(3) + \log_3(2) = 1 + \log_3(2)$$
