6.4: Logarithmic Functions The inverse function of y = f(x) = a x is x = a y , which is equivalent to the logarithmic function y = log a x . This equivalence is used to convert between logarithmic and exponential functions. If the base is the number e , then x = e y if and only if y = ln x . Write the equation in logarithmic form: 1. 16 = 4 2 2. a 3 = 2.1 3. 8 2/3 = 4 4. e 2.2 = M Write in exponential form: 5. log b 4 = 2 6. log 2 6 = x 7. log 3 N = 2.1 8. ln x = 4 Evaluate; if a u = a v , then u = v: 9 . log 8 8 10. log 3 9 1 11. log 5 25 3 12. ln e 3 y = log a x or x = a y Domain Range x-intercept Vertical asymptote Charac- teristic Passes through a > 1 (0, ) (- , ) (1, 0) y-axis as
