# How to reverse log base 10 in Excel

You can watch a video tutorial here.

Excel has several operators and functions that can be used to perform basic mathematical operations. One such operation is finding the inverse log of a number. The inverse of a logarithmic function is an exponential function. To reverse log base 10, we need to raise 10 to the power of the number. To do this, we use the following functions:

1. Using the caret (^) operator
2. Using the POWER() function which returns a number raised to the exponent:
1. Syntax: POWER(number, exponent)
1. number: the number to be raised
2. exponent: the power to which the number is to be raised

## Option 1 – Use the caret (^) operator

### Step 1 – Create the formula

• Select the destination cell
• Type the formula using cell references:

=Base ^ Log

• Press Enter

## Option 2 – Use the POWER() function

### Step 1 – Create the formula

• Select the destination cell
• Type the formula using cell references:

=POWER(Base,Log)

• Press Enter
