...Now we find log. 7434 = 3.8712226, and therefore between . 01 and . 001 is 3, and so on. In general, **The characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is** found by affixing the negative sign to the number which is greater by unity than the number of zeros... | |

...attached. Thus 2 is the characteristic. And generally by following this reasoning it will appear that **the characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is negative, and** is the number of non-significant digits increased by 1. Thus log. -00347 has 3 for its characteristic,... | |

...form — - 2 + a decimal fraction, the decimal part being always kept positive. Hence the rule : — **(2.) The characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is negative, and** is one more than the number of ciphers immediatelv following the decimal point. Thus the logarithm... | |

...logarithm of a number greater than unity is one less than the number of digits in the whole number. **The characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is negative, and** is one more than the number of ciphers immediately after the decimal point. Thus, the characteristics... | |

...mantissa, that is, the characteristic is @3, and so on. Hence, we have the following rule: III.The **characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is negative, and** is numerically one greater than the number of ciphers between the decimal point and the first significant... | |

...Since 10~2 = T Jj, we have log .01 = — 2. Since 10-:! = jjiw we llave loS -0001 = — 3, etc. Hence **the characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than unity is negative.** If no cipher immediately follows the decimal point, the number lies between 1 and .1, hence its logarithm... | |
