Section 4.5: Logarithmic and Exponential Equations Instructor: Ms. Hoa Nguyen ([email protected]) The logarithmic function y = log a x with 0 < a 6 = 1 and the exponential function y = a x with 0 < a 6 = 1 are one-to-one functions and inverse functions of each other. Hence, we have the 1st set of properties which are used to solve logarithmic or exponential equations: p = log R L ⇐⇒ L = R p a log a x = x log a a x = x Example 1 : Example 2 : 1
