Running Head: HISTORY OF LOGARITHMS History of Logarithms Name Institution History of Logarithms Introduction In the modern day logarithm tables are comprehensive and lengthy tables with figures depicting different mathematical computations. Due to their complexity most learners do not readily understand their use in computations. However it is important that a learner is able to grasp the application of logarithms and the underlying theory at the earliest time possible. This is mainly because they advance in complexity with the level of study. Thus failing to understand the basics weakens in a wide range of fields both academic and in practice. For this reason their relevance begins from the time of their invention to ‘plus infinity'. Not even modern technology has been able to circumvent their use. On the contrary logarithms have been integrated into modern technology. Scientists continue to advance logarithms over time as the understanding increases. References Clark K. (2018).

Hello, I need help with this assignment In this assignment, I am asked to explain the history of logarithms. I need only the 3rd question to be done (The Historian part) so the first two are not required. Any help will be thanked.
