## Number of digits in 5 to the 40th power

Calculating $5^{40}$ gives us 28 digits. Calculating the number of digits in 5 to the 40th power

### Find the number of digits in 5 to the 40th power

Let's calculate the common logarithm of 5 to the 40th power.

\begin{eqnarray}
\log_{10}5^{40}&=&40 \log_{10}5\\
&=&40\times 0.6989\cdots\\
&=&27.958
\end{eqnarray}

In other words,
We can say that $5^{40}=10^{27.958}$, so we know that $5^{40}$ has 28 digits.

### How to find the number of digits

To find the number of digits in $5^{40}$, use common logarithms.

By using the common logarithm, we can calculate the power of 10, so we know the number of digits.

For example, $10^1=10$ is 2 digits.
On the other hand, $10^2=100$, so 3 digits.

So $10^a$ has $10+1$ digits.
If $a$ is a decimal, the number of digits is the integer part plus 1.

$a=11.34$ will be 12 digits.
