1 Solvig Logarithms ad Epoetial Equatios Logarithmic Equatios There are two major ideas required whe solvig Logarithmic Equatios. The first is the Defiitio of a Logarithm. You may recall from a earlier topic: If a umber (N) is writte as a power with a base (b) ad a epoet (e), such as e N = b the log b N = e. The base, b, must be a positive umber (b > 0) ad ot equal to 1 (b 1). The umber, N, must also be positive (N > 0) For the equatio below, chagig the Logarithm form to Epoetial form will solve for the variable. (These were covered i the Defiitio of a Log topic) log = 10 = 10 = 100 Note: Whe solvig ay Logarithm equatios, you should perform a check to see that the aswer(s) obtaied were cosistet with the defiitio of a Log. Similar to this, the questio below is solved usig the defiitio of a Log ad kowledge of equatios cotaiig epoets. log 5 = 5 = = ± 5 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Academic Practice Academic Skills Page 1 T E W [last edited o 13 July 015] CRICOS Provider: 0141G

2 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Check: As the base of a Log must be (b > 0) ad (b 1), the solutio =-5 is ot cosistet with the defiitio. The solutio to this questio is =5 This type of questio ca become more comple depedig o the umbers. I this eample, a calculator is required. You may eed to review Epoets Equatios with Epoets. log =.1 =.1.1 = = to 3 d.p. A third type is where the variable becomes the epoet. For eample: log4 5 = ca be rewritte usig the defiitio of a log to be 5= 4 which ca be solved as a epoetial equatio (see below). However, a much easier method of solutio is to use the Chage of Base Rule. log4 5 = log 5 l 5 = alteratively log 4 l 4 = to 3 d.p. The secod major idea is based o equivalece. Put simply: If... log b M = log N the M = N b Note: There must be a sigle Log term o each side of the equals sig. Eample: log + log 5 = log 0 log 5 = log 0 Usig Log Rule 1 (Product Rule) 5 = 0 = 4 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Academic Practice Academic Skills Page T E W [last edited o 13 July 015] CRICOS Provider: 0141G

3 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Eample: l = l 36 l l 36 Usig Rule 3 (Power Rule) = = 36 = ± 6 Check: The logarithm ca oly be foud of positive values oly, so the solutio is =6. Some equatios will cotai a mi of Log terms ad umbers, there are two strategies to solve this; (i) Rearrage to get Log terms o oe side ad umber(s) o the other, or (ii) Replace the umber with a equivalet Log. For eample - 1 is the same as log4 4, log55, log1010 etc. Eample: Solve for : log 4( + 4) = log43 Usig strategy (i) log ( + 4) = log log ( + 4) log 3 = log4 = = = = 48 = 44 = or Usig strategy (ii) log ( + 4) = log log ( + 4) log 4 = log log ( + 4) log 4 = log log4 = log = = 48 = 44 = Mied eamples: (i) Solve for. log9 = 0.5 log = = = 9 = 3 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Academic Practice Academic Skills Page 3 T E W [last edited o 13 July 015] CRICOS Provider: 0141G

6 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Epoetial Equatios A equatio where the epoet (ide) is a variable or cotais a variable is called a epoetial equatio. A eample is 3 = 0. Let s cosider the eample below: If a ivestor deposits \$0 000 i a accout that compouds at 5% p.a., how log is it before this amout has icreased to \$30 000? (Compouded aually) Usig the compoud iterest formula gives: A= P(1 + i) = 0000(1.05) The first step is to rearrage the equatio to get the form a= b or b = a = = 1.05 The take the log of both sides. Because calculatios will eed to be performed, ordiary logarithms or atural logarithms should be used. 1.5 = 1.05 log1.5 = log1.05 takig the log of both sides log1.5 = log1.05 usig the third log law log1.5 = rearragig log1.05 = = 1.05 l1.5 = l1.05 takig the log of both sides l1.5 = l1.05 usig the third log law l1.5 = rearragig l1.05 = 8.31 This meas that it will take 8.31years (9 years i practice) for the growth i value to occur. This ca be checked by calculatig: This eample cotais a simple power =1.5 3 = 10 log 3 = log10 log 3 = log10 log10 = log 3 1 = log 3 =.096 Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Academic Practice Academic Skills Page 6 T E W [last edited o 13 July 015] CRICOS Provider: 0141G

She assumes that the superauatio fud will retur 6%pa or 0.5%pm. How log before her goal is reached? This is a Future Value of a Auity, with r = 0.005, R = 1500 ad S = ( r) 1+ 1 S = R r ( ) = = 1500 ( ) 1 mult both sides by = divide both sides by = add 1 to both sides Cetre for Teachig ad Learig Academic Practice Academic Skills Page 7 T E W [last edited o 13 July 015] CRICOS Provider: 0141G
