"Here’s e, or Why Credit Card Debt Is a Bad Idea" - Inspired by the Mathematical Constant e

Logarithms provide a way to solve complex math problems without a computer. This was very useful in the days before computers and calculators. Slide rules, the calculators of their day, make use of logarithms to perform calculations more quickly and easily than can be done by hand.  Natural logarithms are calculated using e, sometimes called Euler’s number. e is equal to 2.718281828459….. It can help you determine how fast something grows or how long it will take for something to grow to a certain level. The Swiss mathematician Jacob Bernoulli discovered e (although it was not called that until later) in 1683 while studying ways to calculate compound interest. While e can help you see how fast your debt will grow if you don’t pay off your credit card, it can also show why you should invest in a 401-K.
