Lecture 25 1 Lecture 25: (Sec. 5.1) Exponential Functions Def. An Exponential function with base b is the function defined by where x is any real number, b > 0 and b 6 = 1. How do we evaluate b x for all x ?

Lecture 25 2 ex. For f ( x ) = 4 x , find: 1) f ( - 2) 2) f ( 3 2 ) 3) f ( 3) Be sure to notice the difference between these two functions: ex. f ( x ) = 4 x ex. g ( x ) = x 4

Lecture 25 3 Laws of Exponents Let x and y be any real numbers and let a and b be positive. Then, 1) a 0 = 2) a x a y = 3) a x a y = 4) ( a x ) y = 5) ( ab ) x = 6) ( a b ) x = 7) a - x =

Lecture 25 4 ex. Simplify: 1) ( 4 3 ) - 2 = 2) 25 - 2 3 5 25 1 6 3) 8 2 n +1 ( 1 4 ) n

Lecture 25 5 NOTE: We have another important property of exponents. 8) Let x and y be real numbers and let b > 0, b 6 = 1. If b x = b y , then NOTE: What happens if b = 1? ex. Solve for x : ( 1 27 ) 2 x - 5 = 81 x
