## LOG10 Base-10 Logarithm Function

Section: Mathematical Functions

### Usage

Computes the`log10`

function for its argument. The general
syntax for its use is
y = log10(x)

where `x`

is an `n`

-dimensional array of numerical type.
Integer types are promoted to the `double`

type prior to
calculation of the `log10`

function. Output `y`

is of the
same size as the input `x`

. For strictly positive, real inputs,
the output type is the same as the input.
For negative and complex arguments, the output is complex.

### Example

The following piece of code plots the real-valued`log10`

function over the interval `[1,100]`

:
--> x = linspace(1,100); --> plot(x,log10(x)) --> xlabel('x'); --> ylabel('log10(x)');
