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
