Calculating/approximating ln(x) 'by hand'?
posted by unixrat to science & nature (18 answers total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
I've got an application that only has a limited set of mathematical operators: +, -, parens (), multiplication/division, pow() or **, mod, and div.
I've got a request to calculate ln(x). How can I best approximate this using the operators available to me, if at all? (As far as I can tell, x will be between 0.00 and 100.00 - two digit precision.)
