# Java Guava | LongMath log10(long x, RoundingMode mode) method with Examples

The method **log10(long x, RoundingMode mode)** of Guava’s LongMath Class accepts two parameters and calculates the base-10 logarithmic value of the first parameter rounded according to the rounding mode specified by the second parameter.

**Syntax:**

public static int log10(long x, RoundingMode mode)

**Parameters:** The method takes 2 parameters:

is the long value to be found log of.*x*is the specified rounding mode.*mode*

**Return Value:** This method returns Base-10 logarithm of x, rounded according to the specified rounding mode.

**Exceptions:** This method throws following parameters:

**IllegalArgumentException:**if the value x is 0 or a negative value.**ArithmeticException:**if mode is RoundingMode.UNNECESSARY and x is not a power of ten.

#### Enum RoundingMode

Enum Constant | Description |
---|---|

CEILING |
Rounding mode to round towards positive infinity. |

DOWN |
Rounding mode to round towards zero. |

FLOOR |
Rounding mode to round towards negative infinity. |

HALF_DOWN |
Rounding mode to round towards “nearest neighbor” unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round down. |

HALF_EVEN |
Rounding mode to round towards the “nearest neighbor” unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case, round towards the even neighbor. |

HALF_UP |
Rounding mode to round towards “nearest neighbor” unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round up. |

UNNECESSARY |
Rounding mode to assert that the requested operation has an exact result, hence no rounding is necessary. |

UP |
Rounding mode to round away from zero. |

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

**Example 1:**

`// Java code to show implementation of ` `// log10(long x, RoundingMode mode) method ` `// of Guava's LongMath class ` ` ` `import` `java.math.RoundingMode; ` `import` `com.google.common.math.LongMath; ` ` ` `class` `GFG { ` ` ` ` ` `// Driver code ` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `long` `a1 = ` `10000` `; ` ` ` ` ` `// Using log10(long x, RoundingMode mode) ` ` ` `// method of Guava's LongMath class ` ` ` `// The RoundingMode HALF_EVEN rounds towards ` ` ` `// the "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors ` ` ` `// are equidistant, in which case, round towards ` ` ` `// the even neighbor. ` ` ` `System.out.println( ` ` ` `LongMath.log10( ` ` ` `a1, ` ` ` `RoundingMode.HALF_EVEN)); ` ` ` ` ` `long` `a2 = ` `15` `; ` ` ` ` ` `// Using log10(long x, RoundingMode mode) ` ` ` `// method of Guava's LongMath class ` ` ` `// The RoundingMode HALF_DOWN rounds towards ` ` ` `// "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors ` ` ` `// are equidistant, in which case round down. ` ` ` `System.out.println( ` ` ` `LongMath.log10(a2, ` ` ` `RoundingMode.HALF_DOWN)); ` ` ` `} ` `} ` |
