MAC 1105 Pre-Class Assignment: Properties of LogarithmsRead section 4.3 ‘Properties of Logarithms’ to prepare for classIn this week’s pre-requisite module, we covered the topics solving rational equations, interval notation and exponents. These are crucial skills needed for the conversation that we will be having this week about properties of logarithms and solving exponential and logarithmic equations.Recall that the inverse of an exponential function is a logarithmic function. We can write x=ayin the logarithmic form as y=logaxProduct Rule:loga(MN)=logaM+logaNfor any M > 0 and N > 0This comes from the rule of exponents aM.aN=aM+1)We want to find the exact value of log 20+log 5without using a calculator.a)Can you find the exact value of either log 20or log 5without using a calculator?.N
