# What is Log Base 10 of 1000?

## How to Find log(1000)? - Work with Steps

The below is the work with steps to find what is log base 10 of 1000 shows how the input values are being used in the log base 10 functions.
__Formula:__

log_{b}(x) = y, if b^{y} = x

__Input:__

`x` = 1000

`b` = 10

__Solution:__

y = log_{10} 1000

= log_{10} 10^{3}

= 3 log_{10} 10 = 3 x 1

log_{10} 1000 = 3

log_{10}(1000) = 3
