5.1, Exponential Functions Exponential Functions The domain of f is the set of all real numbers. The function defined by f(x) = b x (b>0,but b≠1) is called an exponential function with base b and exponent x. Properties of the Exponential Function The function is one-to-one. The range is (0, infinity). Its graph passes through the point (0,1). It is continuous throughout its domain. It is increasing throughout its domain if b>1 and decreasing throughout its domain if b<1. The function f(x) = e x is called the Natural Exponential Function. Its graph lies between the graphs of y = 2 x and y = 3 x . 1. Solve the equation for x: 5 2x = 5 6 2. Solve the equation for x: 4 (4x+4) = 1/64 3. Sketch the graph of y = 2 x

Unformatted text preview: positive numbers m and n: Log b mn = Log b m + Log b n Log b m/n = Log b m - Log b n Log b m n = n Log b m Log b 1 = 0 Log b b = 1 Logarithmic Function The function defined by f(x) = log b x ( b&gt;0, b1) is called the logarithmic function with base b. The domain of f is the set of all positive numbers. Properties of Logarithmic Functions The function is one-to-one Its range is (-infinity, infinity) Its graph passes through the point (1,0) It is continuous throughout its domain It is increasing on (0,infinity) if b&gt;1 and decreasing if b&lt;1. 5. Use the properties of logarithms to expand and simplify the expression log (x(x 2 + 5) 8 ) A property relating e x and ln x: ln e x = x 6. Use logarithms to solve the equation for t: e 0.37t = 11.1 Round your answer to four decimal places 7. If f(x) = log b (x) has the given graph, What is b?...
