    var b = Math.log(base);
  
    return a / b;
}

// Logarithm with custom base:
//                               base    x               y
console.log( calculateLogarithm( 2,      2      ) ); //  1
console.log( calculateLogarithm( 2,      4      ) ); //  2
console.log( calculateLogarithm( Math.E, Math.E ) ); //  1
console.log( calculateLogarithm( 3,      9      ) ); // ~2
console.log( calculateLogarithm( 3,      81     ) ); // ~4
console.log( calculateLogarithm( 10,     10     ) ); //  1
