There is no simple method to calculate logarithms. The traditional way to find a log of a number was to look it up in a table. You then had to add for the power of ten in the top digit. For the number 2000, you would look up 2.00 in the table and get the result .30103. Then, because 2000 is 2.00 x 103, you would add 3 to the answer and get 3.30103.
Luckily, that isn't usually necessary anymore. Nearly all good calculators have a log button. You can also do them with the Google search bar (hardly anyone seems to know this). Just type in log(2000) and Google instantly gives the answer:log(2 000) = 3.30103
No. The so-called "natural" logarithms have a base of ' e ', and you can find the log of any positive number to any base you like.
The simplest way to do it is to use Logarithms, from a book of Logarithmic Tables and Anti-logarithms. You simply look up the Logarithm of your quantity, then divide that quantity by 2 , and then look up its Anti-logarithm. that will give you the answer.

Natural logarithms are logarithms to base e, where e is the transcendental number which is roughly equal to 2.71828. One of its properties is that the slope (derivative) of the graph of ex at any point is also ex.
It is Euler's number which is the base of natural logarithms.
Actually we don't. Any number greater than 1 can be used; it need not even be a whole number. In computer science, the number 2 is often used as a base; in advanced math, the number "e" is often used - this number is approximately 2.71828..., and for theoretical reasons it is considered to be the most "natural" base for logarithms. In fact, the logarithms in base "e" are called "natural logarithms".
Near enough the exact value of the number. Logarithms, for positive numbers, have are invertible.
The base of common logarithms is ten.
