I get

In[27]:= Log[7.]
Out[27]= 1.94591

Then

In[28]:= Log[7] 3.52568
Out[28]= 6.86066

which is different from your value 2.9795. You're probably using a different base for your logarithms. There seems to be nothing wrong with Mathematica.

To get larger fonts in your notebooks, use Menu|Format|OptionsInspector|FormattingOptions|FontOptions|Magnification and change the default value to 1.25 or 1.5 (I use 1.25). Make sure you have made the selection for notebook or global.
