To use this function, choose .

Calculates 10^{n}, where n is the specified number. For example, the antilog of 2 is 10^{2} = 100.

###### Note

Some calculators define the Antilog function using a base other than 10, such as base e. In Minitab, the inverse function for the natural logarithm is the Exponential function.

## Syntax

ANTILOG(number)

In number, specify the value or column of values. Minitab calculates 10^{n}.

## Uses

The antilog is the inverse of the log base 10. You can use the antilog to calculate the original values of data that were previously transformed using a log base 10. For example, if an original data value is 18,349, the log base 10 of 18,349 ≈ 4.2636124. To transform 4.2636124 back to the original value, use antilog (4.2636124) ≈ 18,349.
