Well I have this leftwards arrow in my book describing the solution to a logarithmic function and I've not seen it thus far and (if I was ever introduced to it) have since forgot what it means!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When asked to find log(3)9

3^x = 9

3^x = 3^2

<--x = 2

log(3)9 = 2

I'm not sure what the leftwards arrow beside the x is for :(

Please forgive my logarithmic notation, I'm aweful with latex(?) so please note that 3 is the base (so I separated it in brackets).
