In arithmetic, the easy logarithm is the logarithm with base 10. it is likewise common because of the fact the decadic logarithm, named after its base. it rather is indicated by using log10(x), or specially circumstances Log(x) with a capital L (whether, this notation is ambiguous because of the fact it may additionally imply the complicated organic logarithmic multi-valued function). On calculators it rather is customarily "log", yet mathematicians commonly imply organic logarithm extremely than straightforward logarithm while they write "log".

if simply written log(x), then it is base 10. But the natural log or ln(x) is base e. I find that this has a much broader application.
