LOGEST: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use LOGEST in Google Sheets?

LOGEST is an Excel function used to calculate the logarithm of a given number. The function takes an input of x, and calculates the logarithm of x to the base of e. The function is written as:

=LOGEST(x,b)

Where x is the number for which the logarithm is to be calculated, and b is the base of the logarithm. The base of the logarithm is typically 10, but can be any number.

To use the LOGEST function in Google Sheets, simply enter the function into a cell, and specify the input and base values. The function will return the logarithm of the input value to the base specified.

What is the syntax of LOGEST in Google Sheets?

LOGEST is the syntax for the LOGEST function in Google Sheets. The LOGEST function calculates the logarithm of the exponential of a given set of data. The syntax for the LOGEST function is: LOGEST(x,y,true)

What is an example of how to use LOGEST in Google Sheets?

LOGEST is a function in Google Sheets that can be used to calculate the logarithm of a number. The LOGEST function takes two arguments, the first of which is the number for which you want to calculate the logarithm, and the second of which is the base of the logarithm. The function will return the logarithm of the number to the base specified.

For example, if you wanted to calculate the logarithm of 10 to the base 2, you would use the LOGEST function like this: =LOGEST(10,2). This would return the value of 2.30258509.

When should you not use LOGEST in Google Sheets?

LOGEST should not be used in Google Sheets when you are trying to calculate the exponential decay of a radioactive substance. LOGEST is not equipped to handle the large numbers that are associated with exponential decay.

What are some similar formulae to LOGEST in Google Sheets?

LOGEST is the exponential decay function in Google Sheets. Other similar formulae are the following:

1) Y = A*e^(-B*x)

2) Y = A*e^(-B*t)

3) Y = A*e^(-C*x^2)

4) Y = A*e^(-D*x^3)

5) Y = A*e^(-E*x^4)

6) Y = A*e^(-F*x^5)

7) Y = A*e^(-G*x^6)

8) Y = A*e^(-H*x^7)

9) Y = A*e^(-I*x^8)

10) Y = A*e^(-J*x^9)
