The properties are related because the definition of the logarithm function and exponential functions are related (as inverse functions).

Work Step by Step

The logarithm function is defined as the inverse of the exponential function. $\log_{a}x=y$ means that $a^{y}=x.$ So, logarithm properties are going to closely mirror the properties of exponents.
