A119256 Successively better denominators for estimating base 10 logs of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. "Better" is defined by the RMS error of the best numerators for each given denominator. 1

%e a(6)=40 because the square root of the mean of (12-40*log(2))^2, (19-40*log(3))^2, (24-40*log(4))^2, (28-40*log(5))^2, (31-40*log(6))^2, (34-40*log(7))^2, (36-40*log(8))^2 and (38-40*log(9))^2 is smaller than the RMS values obtained using any denominator smaller than 40.
