74 Chapter 4 Transcendental Functions whenever x = p/q ; if we were to graph this we’d see something like this: . But this is a poor picture, because you can’t see that the “curve” is really a whole lot of individual points, above the rational numbers on the x -axis. There are really a lot of “holes” in the curve, above x = π , for example. But (this is the hard part) it is possible to prove that the holes can be “filled in”, and that the resulting function, called 2 x , really does have the properties we want, namely that 2 x 2 y = 2 xy and (2 x ) y = 2 xy . Exercises 1. Expand ln(( x + 45) 7 ( x - 2)). 2. Expand ln x 3 3 x - 5 + (7 /x ) . 3. Sketch the graph of y = ln( x - 7) 3 + 14. 4. Sketch the graph of y = ln | x | for x = 0. 5. Write ln 3 x + 17 ln( x - 2) - 2 ln( x 2 + 4 x + 1) as a single logarithm. 6. Differentiate f ( x ) = x ln x . 7. Differentiate f

    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.
