Solve the exponential and logarithmic equations. Contents: 6.1 Exponential Functions 6.2 Logarithmic Functions 6.3 Properties of Logarithms 6.4 Logarithmic and Exponential Equations 6.1 EXPONENTIAL FUNCTIONS Definition An exponential function is a function of the form f x a x ( ) = where a is a positive real number and a 1. The domain of f is the set of all real numbers. Theorem : Laws of Exponents.
