I am attempting to write a page concerning exponentiation and logarithms for my website www.1728.com Basically I'd like to know the precise terminology. In the equation 2³ = 8 we can say that "2" is the base, "3" is the exponent but what exactly is the "8" called? I have seen it referred to (no doubt incorrectly) as the power??? I'm thinking the "8" could be called the answer, the result, or the product but there might be a better term. In this equation, log 2 (8) = 3 "2" is the base, "8" is the anti-logarithm and "3" is the logarithm. (I'm guessing I have defined those correctly). Any answers would be greatly appreciated and thank you.
