Additional Activities 1. A student solves a logarithmic equation as follows: Given: ) 24 log( ) 2 log( ) log( # / x x Solution: 0 Use the properties of logarithms to get 24 log )] 2 ( log[ # x x 0 Now divide by log and cancel to get the following result: !

Unformatted text preview: and 6 ’ # x 4 ’ / x So the solutions are 6 and -4. Mistakes: 1. We don’t divide by log. 2. Must eliminate -4. 2. A student has to solve a system of equations ) 1 log( 2 3 # ’ # # ’ x y x y . He decides to graph both equations. The student then copies the following diagram to his worksheet. a. What is wrong with his diagram? Graph of log( 1) x # is graphed incorrectly 1. It goes through the point (2,0) 2. The left-side of the graph doesn’t end b. Will the two graphs have an intersection? Yes c. Will the solution (if there is one) be less than or greater than 1? Explain how you know that, without actually drawing more of the diagram. Must be greater than 1 since the domain of log( 1) x # is ! " 1, ,...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
