Is There Really No Built-in Log\NL Function?

My team and I are trying to implement our escalation algorithm in smart sheet but it would seem that SS can't compute natural log in formula.  Are we missing something; Why is the SS math library so dumbed down? 

Below is the formula in Excel we are trying to migrate.  

=ROUNDUP(LN(A2)/1.609437912,0)+1

WHERE: A2 is a user input field for the number of user impacted by the issue. 

 

Clearly you could do something with a bunch of nested if statements that would work but it would be a mess.
