# Antilog (antilogarithm) Calculator

## What is Antilog?

**LOG** (also known as a “**compression operator**”) is a mathematical tool that compresses numbers. It is typically used when numbers are too large or too small to handle easily, as often happens in astronomy or integrated circuits. Once compressed, a number can be converted back to its original form using an inverse operator known as “antilog.”

## What Antilog / Antilogarithm Calculator does?

The **antilog**, or **antilogarithm**, is the inverse function of the **logarithm**. The antilogarithm of a number y is equal to the base b raised to the power of y (the exponent). That is, x is the antilog in base b of y, or expressed in symbols, x = antilogb(y), which is equivalent to x = by.
