A logarithm is the exponent of a mathematical equation. For example, in base 2, log 3 = 8. The inverse logarithm expresses that relationship as 2 raised to the third power equals 8. Excel uses this latter convention to generate inverse logarithm functions, but has no dedicated inverse log functions of its own.
