I'm trying to understand and/or prove this identity:

b^{logbx}= x

I've inserted numbers, and it does work, but I just don't seem to understand why. I mean, some identities are obvious, like:

log_{b}b^{x}= x

since b^{x}= b^{x}

but I can't make any sense of the top one.

Also, I'm sorry for posting a lot. This is my third thread today!
