handa (nh5757) – Inverse functions and logs – bormashenko – (54880) 1 This print-out should have 27 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0points Find the value of x when x = 4 3 parenleftBig 2 log 2 2 parenrightBig 9 parenleftBig 3 log 3 4 parenrightBig without using a calculator. 1. x = 1 2 2. x = 5 12 3. x = 5 12 correct 4. x = 7 12 5. x = 1 2 Explanation: Since 2 log 2 x = x, 3 log 3 x = 1 x , we see that 2 log 2 2 = = 2 , while 3 log 3 4 = = 1 4 . Consequently, x = 8 3 9 4 = 5 12 . 002 10.0points Use properties of logs to simplify the ex- pression log a 32 + 4 5 log a 10 4 5 log a 5 + log a 1 2 9 5 as much as possible. 1. log a 16 correct 2. log a 2 6 3. log a 32 4. log a 64 5. 16 Explanation: By properties of logs the given expression can be rewritten as log a braceleftBig 2 5 · 10 4 5 5 4 5 · 2 · 2 4 5 bracerightBig = log a 16 . 003 10.0points Rewrite 3 4 = 81 in equivalent logarithmic form. 1. log 81 3 = 4 2. log 3 81 = 4 3. log 3 81 = 4 correct 4. log 10 81 = 3 5. log 3 1 81 = 4 Explanation: Taking logs to the base 3 of both sides we see that log 3 81 = log 3 3 4 = 4 log 3 3 . But log 3 3 = 1 , so log 3 81 = 4 .

handa (nh5757) – Inverse functions and logs – bormashenko – (54880) 2 keywords: LogFunc, LogFuncExam, 004 10.0points Find the value of x when x = 7 log 2 parenleftBig 1 4 parenrightBig + 6 log 4 64 . 1. x = 4 correct 2. x = 5 3. x = 6 4. x = 5 5. x = 4 6. x = 6 Explanation: By properties of logs, log 2 parenleftBig 1 4 parenrightBig = log 2 parenleftBig 1 (2) 2 parenrightBig = 2 , while log 4 64 = log 4 (4) 3 = 3 . Consequently, x = 18 14 = 4 . 005 10.0points If f is a one-to-one function such that f (8) = 2, what is the value of f 1 (2)? 1. f 1 (2) = 10 2. not enough information given 3. f 1 (2) = 8 correct 4. f 1 (2) = 14 5. f 1 (2) = 6 6. f 1 (2) = 13 Explanation: Since f (8) = 2 and f is one-to-one, the inverse, f 1 , of f exists and f 1 ( f ( x )) = f ( f 1 ( x )) = x . Consequently, f 1 (2) = f 1 ( f (8)) = 8 . keywords: inverse, one-to-one, 006 10.0points Find the inverse function, f 1 , of f ( x ) = 5 x 7 x 2 + 1 . 1. f 1 ( x ) = 25 + 7 x 2 x 2. f 1 ( x ) = x 25 + 7 x 2 3. f 1 ( x ) = x 25 7 x 2 correct 4. f 1 ( x ) = 25 7 x 2 7 x 5. f 1 ( x ) = 7 25 x 2 6. f 1 ( x ) = 25 x 2 7 Explanation: The graph of f ( x ) = 5 x 7 x 2 + 1 , is shown as a continuous line in f f 1
handa (nh5757) – Inverse functions and logs – bormashenko – (54880) 3 Since this graph passes the horizontal line test, f will have an inverse, f 1 , whose graph is shown as a dotted line. Algebraically, this inverse function is defined by y = f 1 ( x ) where x = 5 y radicalbig 7 y 2 + 1 . Solving for y we see that 25 y 2 = x 2 ( 7 y 2 + 1 ) = 7 x 2 y 2 + x 2 , i.e. , y 2 ( 25 7 x 2 ) = x 2 . Thus y = x 25 7 x 2 , 5 7 < x < 5 7 , and so f 1 ( x ) = x 25 7 x 2 , 5 7 < x < 5 7 . 007 10.0points Simplify the expression ln 8 e 4 as much as possible 1. ln 8 1 2. ln 8 3. ln 8 4 correct 4. ln e 2 5. ln 4096 6. None of these Explanation: By properties of logs ln 8 e 4 = ln 8 ln e 4 = ln 8 4 ln e .

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.

• 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.
