public static double Log10(
	BigInteger value


Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

A number whose logarithm is to be found.

Return Value

Sign of value parameter

Return value


The base 10 log of value; that is, log10value.





To calculate the natural logarithm of a BigInteger value, call the BigInteger.Log(BigInteger) method. To calculate the logarithm of a number in another base, call the BigInteger.Log(BigInteger, Double) method.

This method corresponds to the Math.Log10 method for the primitive numeric types.
