Proposition: Logarithm to a General Base

The exponential function of general base $\mathbb R\to\mathbb R,~x\to a^x$, is invertible for all positive bases $a > 0$. Its inverse function is continuous, strictly monotonically increasing and called the logarithm to the base $a$
\[\log_a:\mathbb R_{+}^*\to\mathbb R.\]

Furthermore, $\log_a$ (the logarithm to the base $a$) can be calculated using $\ln$ (i.e. the natural logarithm) by the formula
$$\log_a(x)=\frac{\ln (x)}{\ln(a)},$$
for all $x\in\mathbb R_{+}^*.$
