Properties of Logarithms In the following, x and y are arbitrary real numbers that are strictly bigger than 0, a is an arbitrary constant that is strictly bigger than one and e is 2.7182818284, to ten decimal places. 1) e ln x = x , a log a x = x , log e x = ln x , log a x = ln x ln a 2) log a ( a x ) = x , ln ( e x ) = x ln 1 = 0, log a 1 = 0 ln e = 1, log a a = 1 3) ln( xy ) = ln x + ln y , log a ( xy ) = log a x + log a y 4) ln ( x y ) = ln x - ln y , log a ( x y ) = log a x - log a y ln ( 1 y ) = - ln y , log a ( 1 y ) = - log a y , 5) ln( x y ) = y ln x , log a ( x y ) = y log a x 6) d dx ln x = 1 x , d dx ln( g ( x )) = g 0 ( x ) g ( x ) , d dx log a x = 1 x ln a 7) R 1 x dx = ln | x | + C , R ln x dx = x ln x - x + C 8) lim x →∞ ln x = , lim x 0 ln x = -∞ lim x →∞ log a x = , lim x 0 log a x = -∞ 9) The graph of ln x is given below.

    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.
