and an application of logarithms. © 2007 Paul Dawkins 279 http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/terms.aspx College Algebra Exponential Functions
Let’s start off this section with the definition of an exponential function.
If b is any number such that b > 0 and b ¹ 1 then an exponential function is a function in the
form, f ( x) = bx where b is called the base and x can be any real nu...
