For each function given below, find its inverse from the ‘procedural perspective’ discussed in Example 6.1.5 and graph the function and its inverse on the same set of axes. (a) f (x) = 3x+2 − 4 (b) f (x) = log4 (x − 1) (c) f (x) = −2−x + 1 (d) f (x) = 5 log(x) − 2 4. Show that logb 1 = 0 and logb b = 1 for every b > 0, b = 1. 5. (Crazy bonus question) Without using your calculator, determine which is larger: eπ or π e . 6. (The Logarithmic Scales) There are three widely used measurement scales which involve common logarithms: the Richter scale, the decibel scale and the pH scale. The computations involved in all three scales are nearly identical so pay close a...
