the LOGARITHM is the height of the tower

Logarithms sound bad I know, but they’re not.

Look, this is 10×10
10x10

Say, ‘ten cross ten’. The answer is 100 is it not? It is 2 layers high:

10x10 log2

This means the same thing, but we use less rods when the towers get higher. We can turn this one on its side if we like:

10x10 log 2 flat

Now it looks rather like this flat representation:10 power 2

This means 10×10, 10 squared, 10 raised to the power 2, answer is 100

THE LOGARITHM OF 100 IS 2

…if you are using orange rods and you call an orange rod 10

THE LOGARITHM IS THE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER, THAT’S ALL…………….

The only thing to stress is that the tower must be made of the same colour of rods.

This colour is called the BASE
