Section 4.5: Logarithmic and Exponential Equations Instructor: Ms. Hoa Nguyen ([email protected]) The logarithmic function y = log a x with 0 < a = 1 and the exponential function y = a x with 0 < a = 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

Example 5 : The 2nd set of properties which are used to solve logarithmic or exponential equations: • If a x = a y , then x = y . • If log a M = log a N , then M = N .

    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.
