Solution


In order to find the value of x using antilog-table, the decimal part (i.e., the mantissa) must be made positive. For this we proceed as follows: 

Calculations 


log x = -2.0258 = - 3 + 3 - 2.0258


= - 3 + .9742 =3.9742 


Therefore, x = antilog 3.9742. 


Now, from antilog table we get the number corresponding to the mantissa 

.9742 as (9419 + 4) = 9423. 

Again the characteristic in log x is (- 3). 


Hence, there should be two zeroes between the decimal point and the first significant digit in the value of x. 

Therefore, x = .009423.
