MATH1314 LAB 6 NAME: ________________ Collin County College Fall 2011 Instructor: Daryl Rupp DUE 10/31/2010 Solving exponential equations with bases which are powers of the same number: A. Write both sides of the equation as powers of the same base. B. Set the exponents equal to each other. (b M = b N M = N) C. Solve for x. 1. 5 x 3 x 2 7 7 + + = 2. 9 1 3 13 x 5 = + Solving exponential equations with bases which are not powers of the same number: A. Isolate the exponential term, with a coefficient of one, on one side of the equation. B. Write the exponential equation as an equivalent logarithmic equation. ( M = b c log b M = c ) C. Solve for x. 3. 6 10 4 x = + 4. 8 + 2e x = 58 Solving exponential equations with bases which are not powers of the same number: A. Isolate the exponential term(s), with a coefficient of one. B. Take the “log” or “ln” of both sides. (M = N log b M = log b N) C. Simplify using the Power Rule. D. Solve for x. 5. 7 x+1 = 3 6. 5 x + 2 = 6 x – 7
