Horizontal Line Test. If f is one-to-one, then each horizontal line meets the graph of f in at most one point. ln(x) is one-to-one
ln(x) is one-to-one ln(x) is invertible Define the exponential function e x to be the inverse of the natural logarithm ln(x) =ln(x) =e x

=ln(x) =e x Note: The inverse function f -1 undoes whatever f does… So we get: ln(e x ) = x e ln(x) = x
