3 EXPLAIN EXPONENTIAL FUNCTIONS Summar You have alread graphed linear functions and quadratic functions. In this concept ou will work with eponential functions. You will graph eponential functions, look at applications of eponential functions, and solve eponential equations. Definition of an Eponential Function Here are some eamples of eponential functions: f () = g() = h() = 7 In general, an eponential function is a function of the form = f () = b. Here, the constant b is called the base and is a positive number not equal to. The independent variable,, is the eponent. Notice that in an eponential function, the variable is the eponent. The function = is not an eponential function because the variable,, is the base. The domain of an eponential function is all real numbers. The range of an eponential function is all positive real numbers. The Graph of an Eponential Function To graph an eponential function ou can make a table of points, plot the points, and join them with a smooth curve, as ou have done for other functions. Here s a table of points for the eponential function =. The graph is shown in Figure EIII.E.. = From the graph of the eponential function =, ou can see that as increases, the graph rises rapidl. As becomes more negative, the graph gets closer to the -ais, but never becomes zero or negative. The -intercept is the point (0, ). The variable,, does not have to be a whole number. For eample, when =, f() = =. You can use our calculator to approimate.7. 9 Remember, = = =. = Figure EIII.E. LESSON EIII.E EXPONENTS AND LOGARITHMS EXPLAIN 7

4 Eponential Growth and Deca = = Figure EIII.E. Here s a table of points for the eponential function = f () =. The graph of = and the graph of = are shown together in Figure EIII.E.. = 0 Notice how the graph of = compares to the graph of = : Both graphs have -intercept (0, ). For positive values of, the graph of = rises more steepl than the graph of =. For negative values of, the graph of = is closer to the -ais than the graph of =. In general, for an eponential function = b when b >, as ou increase the value of b the graph rises more steepl for positive values of and is closer to the -ais for negative values of. For an eponential function = b when b >, as ou decrease the value of b the graph rises less steepl for positive values of and is further from the -ais for negative values of. An eponential function = b with base b > represents eponential growth. You can also write = as =. = _ Figure EIII.E. For an eponential function = b when b is between 0 and, the behavior of the graph is different. For eample, here is a table of points for = f () =. The graph is shown in Figure EIII.E.. = TOPIC EIII ESSENTIALS OF ALGEBRA

5 If ou compare this table with the table for =, ou see the same -values, but the corresponding -values have changed sign. The graph of = is the reflection of the graph of = about the -ais. You can see that the graph of = decreases as ou move from left to right. Figure EIII.E. compares the graph of = with the graph of =. An eponential function = b with base 0 < b < represents eponential deca. Applications of Eponential Functions There are two ver common applications of an eponential function. The first involves eponential growth as it has to do with the calculation of compound interest. = _ Figure EIII.E. = The function A (t ) = P ( + r ) t is an eponential function describing the total amount of mone in an account after t ears. The constant P describes the amount of mone ou initiall deposit, and the constant r, written as a decimal, describes the annual interest rate. For eample, suppose ou deposit $00 in a savings account with an annual interest rate of %, compounded once a ear. Here, the initial amount ou deposit, P, is $00. The annual interest rate, %, epressed as a decimal is r =.0. Then the total amount of mone in the account after 9 ears is given b: A (9) = 00( +.0) 9 = 00(.0) 9 00(.) Here ou can use a calculator to determine that (.0) 9.. = 7. So the total amount in the account after nine ears is approimatel $7.. The second application involves eponential deca and has to do with how a radioactive substance decreases in radioactivit over time. The function A (t ) = Pb rt is an eponential function describing the amount of radioactivit left in a substance after t ears. The constant P describes the amount of radioactivit the substance started with. The base, b, is a constant that depends on the radioactive chemical ou are studing. So does r, which is called the deca constant. The Base e There is a base that is especiall useful in applications such as radioactive deca. It is also important in calculus. This base is the irrational number e. The number e also arises naturall in man applications in science. The number e is an irrational number that lies between and and is approimatel.78. The decimal representation of e,.78..., like the decimal representation of the number π or the decimal representation of the number, does not repeat nor does it stop. LESSON EIII.E EXPONENTS AND LOGARITHMS EXPLAIN 9

6 The graph of = e is the same shape as the graph of = and the graph of =. Because the base, e, is between and, the graph of = e lies between the graphs of = and =, as shown in Figure EIII.E.. Your calculator ma work differentl. = = = e You can use a calculator with an e ke to obtain approimate answers to calculations involving e. For eample, to calculate 00e 0.7 :. Enter the eponent without its sign Press the ± ke Press the e ke Multipl b Figure EIII.E. So 00e 0.7 is approimatel 99.. Continuous Compound Interest Recall the formula A(t ) = P ( + r ) t, which is used when interest is compounded annuall. There is a formula that can be obtained from this formula, and which represents continuous compounding (compounding as frequentl as possible) of interest. This formula involves e and is given b the following: A(t ) = Pe rt As before, P is the original deposit, r is the annual interest rate epressed as a decimal, and t is the number of ears. So to calculate the effect of continuous compounding on a deposit of $00 at % interest for 9 ears ou get: Here ou can use a calculator to determine that e A = 00e 0.0(9) = 00e 0. 00(.9) = 7. So the total amount with continuous compounding is approimatel $7.. Notice that this is a larger amount than the $7. that ou got b compounding onl once each ear. Eponential Equations You have seen how to solve equations such as = 7 and + 7 = 0. Now, ou will solve eponential equations. An eponential equation is an equation that contains the variable in an eponent. Here are some eamples: 7 = t = t + 0 TOPIC EIII ESSENTIALS OF ALGEBRA

7 One wa to solve an eponential equation is to make use of the following propert of eponents: If b = b, then =. (Here, b,, and are real numbers, b > 0, and b.) You will also use some of the other properties of eponents that ou have learned. Here are steps ou can use to solve some eponential equations:. Write both sides of the equation using the same base: b = b.. Set the eponents equal to each other: =.. Finish solving. For eample, to solve t = 8 t for t :. Write both sides of the equation ( ) t = ( ) t using the same base,. (t ) = (t ) t = 9t. Set the eponents equal to each other. t = 9t. Finish solving for t. = t t = Some eponential equations cannot be solved b using this technique. For eample, in the equation = 7, the number 7 cannot easil be written using the base. In the net section, ou will solve this tpe of equation b using logarithms. So t =. Sample Problems Answers to Sample Problems. Here is the graph of the eponential function f () =. On the same set of aes graph: a. = 7 b. = c. = = a. To graph = 7, notice that the base 7 is greater than the base.

9 LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS Summar In this concept ou will look at the inverse function of an eponential function, which is called a logarithmic function. You will graph logarithmic functions and stud their properties. Definition of a Logarithm You have alread used the inverse of a function to write the same information in two different was. For eample, ou can use the squaring function to write: = 9 You can use the square root function to write the same information as: 9 = So the squaring function is the inverse of the square root function. Similarl, the logarithmic function, = log b, is the inverse of the eponential function. Here are some eamples of equations written in the eponential form and in the corresponding logarithmic form: Eponential Form Logarithmic Form = 9 log 9 = 0 = log = = log = () = log = In general, this eponential statement: is equivalent to this logarithmic statement: b L = log b = L An logarithmic statement can be rewritten as an eponential statement and vice versa. You can use this idea to calculate some logarithms. eponent = 8 base argument logarithm log 8 = base For eample, to find log : Call this epression. = log Rewrite the statement in eponential form. = Solve the eponential equation. Write both sides using the base. = Set the eponents equal to each other. = Some logarithms cannot be evaluated this wa. In the net section, ou will approimate them using our calculator. So = log =. LESSON EIII.E EXPONENTS AND LOGARITHMS EXPLAIN

10 The Graph of a Logarithmic Function When ou switch between eponential and logarithmic form ou see that the eponential function and the logarithmic function are inverse functions. Here are the steps to confirm that these functions are inverses of each other. Remember, to find the inverse, f, of f:. Replace f () with.. Switch and.. Solve for.. Replace with f (). Start with the eponential function. Replace f () with. Switch and. Solve for. Replace with f (). f () = b = b = b log b = f () = log b Since the eponential function and the logarithmic function are inverses of each other, ou can use this to our advantage in graphing = log b. Recall that: The graph of the inverse function = f () is obtained b reflecting the graph of = f () about the line =. = Figure EIII.E. = = = log Figure EIII.E.7 Here s how to graph = log. Start with a table of values for the function =. = 9 0 The graph is shown in Figure EIII.E.. To graph the inverse function, = log, reflect the graph of = about the line =. This is shown in Figure EIII.E.7. From the graph, ou can see that as increases, the graph of = log rises slowl. As gets closer to zero, the graph of = log becomes more and more negative. The -intercept is the point (, 0). 9 The domain of the logarithm function is the positive real numbers. The range of the logarithm function is the real numbers. In general, if b >, the graph of the function = f ( ) = log b behaves like the above eample, = log. TOPIC EIII ESSENTIALS OF ALGEBRA

11 Here s another eample. To graph = log : Start with a table of values for the function =. = 0 9 The graph is shown in Figure EIII.E.8. To graph the inverse function, = log line =. This is shown in Figure EIII.E.9., reflect the graph of = about the From the graph, ou can see that as increases, the graph of = log falls slowl. As gets closer to zero, the graph of = log becomes more and more positive. The -intercept is the point (, 0). The domain of the logarithm function is the positive real numbers. The range of the logarithm function is the real numbers. 9 Figure EIII.E.8 = _ = log_ = Figure EIII.E.9 = _ In general, if 0 < b <, the graph of the function = f ( ) = log b behaves like the above eample, = log. Now ou have seen the shape of the graph of a logarithmic function when the base, b, is greater than, or when the base, b, is between 0 and. You can use this information to graph a logarithmic function directl b plotting a few points that satisf the function and joining these points with a smooth curve. Base 0 and Base e For most applications of logarithms ou will use logarithms whose base is either 0 or e. Logarithms to the base 0 are called common logarithms and are usuall written without the base 0, simpl as log rather than log 0. Logarithms to the base e are called natural logarithms and are usuall written ln rather than log e. LESSON EIII.E EXPONENTS AND LOGARITHMS EXPLAIN

12 Properties of Logarithms There are several algebraic properties of logarithms that are true for an base b. The correspond to the familiar properties of eponents. Propert Eamples log b b = log 7 7 = log e e = log b = 0 log 0 = 0 ln = 0 b log b = log = e ln 8 = 8 log b b n = n log 9 = 9 ln e = Log of a Product log b uv = log b u + log b v log 7 = log 7 + log Log of a Quotient u v log b = log b u log b v log = log 7 log Log of a Power log b u n = n log b u log 8 = log 8 v 7 log b = log b v = log b v log = log Here s an eample that uses the first four properties of logarithms to simplif an epression containing logarithms. To find the value of the epression ln e + log 8 7 log 7 : Rewrite In e as log e e and use the propert log b b =. = + log 8 7 log 7 Use the propert log b = 0. = log 7 Use the propert b log b =. = + 0 = 0 So ln e + log 8 7 log 7 = 0. Here s another eample. To find the value of the epression ln log : Rewrite In as log e and use the propert log b = 0. = 0 log Use the propert log b b n = n. = 0 = So, ln log =. TOPIC EIII ESSENTIALS OF ALGEBRA

13 Now here s an eample that uses the product and quotient properties of logarithms. To rewrite the epression log using several logarithms: Use the log of a quotient propert. = log ( )( + ) log ( + 7) Use the log of a product propert. = log ( ) + log ( + ) log ( + 7) So log = log ( ) + log ( + ) log ( + 7). Here s another eample. To simplif ln : Use the log of a quotient propert. = ln ln Use the propert log b = 0. = 0 ln So, ln ( )( + ) + 7 = ln. ( )( + ) + 7 The log of a product propert states that the logarithm of a product is the sum of the separate logarithms. The log of a quotient propert states that the logarithm of a quotient is the difference of the two separate logarithms. Be careful when using the quotient propert. You can use it this wa: log 7 = log 7 log But a quotient of logs is not the same log 7 thing: log 7 log log Here s an eample that uses the logarithm of a power propert. To simplif log 7 log : Write using eponents. = log 7 log Use the log of a power propert. = log 7 log Use the propert log b b =. = log 7 So, log 7 log = log 7. = log 7 In general, ou can simplif epressions containing logarithms using an combination of the logarithmic properties. Here s another eample: To use logarithmic properties to write the epression ln + ln ( ) ln ( + ) as a single logarithm: Use the log of a power propert. = ln + ln ( ) ln ( + ) Use the log of a product propert. = ln ( ) ln ( + ) Use the log of a quotient propert. = ln So, ln + ln ( ) ln ( + ) = ln ( ).

16 SOLVING EQUATIONS Summar In this concept ou will use a calculator to approimate certain logarithms and eponents, and ou will change the base of logarithms. Then ou will solve a variet of equations that contain logarithms or eponents. Calculating Common Logarithms and Eponents You have alread seen how to calculate some logarithms b switching to eponential form. For eample to find log 00: Recall that the common logarithm, log 0, is often written log. Call this epression. = log 00 Rewrite in eponential form. 0 = 00 Write both sides using base 0. 0 = 0 Set the eponents equal to each other. = So log 00 =. This method was successful because 00 could be written as an integer power of the base, 0. That is, 00 = 0. This method cannot be used to find log 0 70 because 70 is not an integer power of 0. That is, there is no integer n, such that 0 n = 70. You can approimate the common logarithm of a number on our calculator. Here are the steps ou can use on man calculators.. Enter the number..

Calculating Natural Logarithms and Eponents To calculate a natural logarithm ou can use the same general steps as ou did for common logarithms and eponents, but use the ln ke instead of the log ke, and use the e ke instead of the 0 ke.

The Change of Base Formula Most calculators have a ke for common logarithms (log) and a ke for natural logarithms (ln). In order to approimate a logarithm to an other base, ou can use the following change of base formula: log b = log c logc b (Here, b, c, and are positive numbers, b, and c.) This formula lets ou find a logarithm to the base b b choosing an other convenient base, c. Usuall ou will choose base 0 or base e for c. LESSON EIII.E EXPONENTS AND LOGARITHMS EXPLAIN
