A multivariate function is a function whose value depends on several variables. In contrast, a univariate function is a function whose value depends on only one variable. A multivariate function is also called a multivariate expression, a multivariate polynomial, a multivariate series, or a multivariate function of several variables.

In calculus, partial derivatives are derivatives of a function with respect to one or more of its arguments, where the other arguments are treated as constants. Partial derivatives contrast with total derivatives, which are derivatives of the total function with respect to all of its arguments.

Alright, let's take a look at the difference between natural logs and common logs. So natural logarithms and common logarithms. The biggest difference is the base, let's take a look at the natural log that is log base E of acts or Ln of X. But both of those mean the same thing. Common logarithms. The only difference is now we're looking at base 10 um and you'll if you see it without base then it is actually still base 10. So log of X is the same as log base 10 of X. Just like natural log of X is the same as log base E of X. Remember with log rules we can write this as either the Y equals X and for common log we can write it as 10 to the Y equals X. So these are equivalent statements and just one last note is super cool. That exponential functions are inverse to log functions so for example, E to the X. That's exponential growth naturally occurring. If I rotate the curve around white balls X. I get the inverse function which is Ln of X. And you can see the symmetry. So. Very cool. Alright. Have fun with logs. See you next time
