Unformatted text preview: ter, we isolate the exponential and take logs to get 2x = ln(4), or x = ln(4) = ln(2). (Can 2 you explain the last equality using properties of logs?) As in the previous example, we need to be careful about choosing test values. Since ln(1) = 0, we choose ln 1 , ln 3 and ln(3). 2 2 1 Evaluating,6 we have r(ln 1 ) = ln 1 e2 ln( 2 ) − 4 ln 1 . Applying the Power Rule to the log 2 2 12 ln( 2 ) 2 1 1 in the exponent, we obtain ln e − 4 ln = ln 1 eln( 4 ) − 4 ln 2 . Using the inverse 2 1 1 1 15 1 1 properties of logs, this reduces to 4 ln 2 − 4 ln 2 = − 4 ln 2 . Since 1 < 1, ln 2 < 0 2 and we get r(ln 1 ) is (+). Continuing in this manner, we ﬁnd r(x) < 0 on (0, ln(2)). The 2 calculator conﬁrms that the graph of f (x) = xe2x is below the graph of g (x) = 4x on this intervals.7 1 2 1 2 (+) 0 (−) 0 (+) 0 ln(2) y = f (x) = xe2x and y = g (x) = 4x 6 7 A calculator can be used at this point. As usual, we proceed without apologies, with the analytical method. Note: ln(2) ≈ 0.693. 364 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Example 6.3.3. Re...

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.
