    Re: Practical Haversine Use (with logs)

    Tony,

    log log a1/b = log log a - log b

    For a = 237 and b = π this is

    -0.12153 = 0.37562 - 0.49715 giving a1/b = 5.70041

    Also

    log log ab = log log a + log b

    For a = 52.37 and b = 2.75 this is

    0.67463 = 0.23530 + 0.43933 giving ab = 53392

    Regards,
    Robin
