let us assume
log 5 1 = x
we know that log a x = log b x log b a
so, log 5 1 = log a 1 log a 5 = x log a = x log a 5 0 = x log a 5\

Log of negative numbers
I know that log of negative numbers is complex numbers. But I just got over this little proof and wondering what is wrong with this?
log(a)=2×log(a)2=12log(a2)=22log(a)=log(a)

How do I calculate the inverse function of this function?
I have this function:
f ( x ) = 1 + ln ( x ) 1 ln ( x )
And i should calculate f 1 ( x )
I am not really sure how to proceed but I think that the first step would be to have x alone, how do I achieve that?

A question in interview for trinity college, Cambridge
Let M be a large real number. Explain why there must be exactly one root w of the equation M x = e x with w > 1. Why is log M a reasonable approximation to w? Write w = log M + y. Can you give an approximation to y, and hence improve on log M as an approximation to w?
I think for the first part perhaps a graph suffices. But I feel a bit unsure of the meaning of log M, is it ln M? or log 10 M?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Proof e x = exp ( x )?
Define
ln ( x ) = 1 x 1 t
Assume I have proven that ln x is one-to-one and therefore has an inverse exp ( x )
Define e as:
ln e = 1
Now, if you have no other notion of exponentials, or logarithms, how could define what e x means and show that its the inverse of ln x?
You are allowed to assume the logarithmic product and quotient property.
Thanks for the help.

Showing x 1 + x < log ( 1 + x ) < x for all x > 0 using the mean value theorem
I want to show that
x 1 + x < log ( 1 + x ) < x
for all x > 0 using the mean value theorem. I tried to prove the two inequalities separately.
x 1 + x < log ( 1 + x ) x 1 + x log ( 1 + x ) < 0
Let
f ( x ) = x 1 + x log ( 1 + x ) .
Since
f ( 0 ) = 0
and
f ( x ) = 1 ( 1 + x ) 2 1 1 + x < 0
for all x > 0, f ( x ) < 0 for all x > 0. Is this correct so far?
I go on with the second part: Let
f ( x ) = log ( x + 1 ). Choose a = 0 and x > 0 so that there is, according to the mean value theorem, an x 0 between a and x with
f ( x 0 ) = f ( x ) f ( a ) x a 1 x 0 + 1 = log ( x + 1 ) x
Since
x 0 > 0 1 x 0 + 1 < 1.
1 > 1 x 0 + 1 = log ( x + 1 ) x x > log ( x + 1 )
