5 10.1(a) Simple exponential function y = f (x) = b x where base b > 1, x is exponent, f (x) The term exponent (x) refers to the power to which a base number (b) is raised. Base exclusions: b 1 and b 0, because f (x) = 1 x = 1; f (x) = 0 x = 0, i.e., constants 0 < b < 1 excluded since they can be expressed as negative exponents b<0 excluded because many values of f (x) from the domain would be imaginary, e.g., (-b) ½ popular bases: e and 10

### What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
