1 A- Lesson A - Natural Exponential Function and Natural Logarithm Functions Natural Exponential Function In Lesson 2, we explored the world of logarithms in base 0. The natural logarithm has a base of e. e is approximately The number e was discovered by a great 8th century mathematician named Euler. This famous irrational number is useful for determining rates of growth and decay. The derivation of e is beyond the scope of this course, but the expresson + n closer and closer to e, as the value substituted for n gets larger and larger. n produces results The natural exponential function is f(x) ex. Your scientific calculator should have a key for finding ex. You can also use the approximate value of e for computations. Below is the graph for f(x) ex f(x) ex x ex Rules of exponents apply to the exponential function. Study the examples of factoring. Example e2x - ex ex ex (ex - ) ex ex - Sometimes it is easier to factor by making a substitution. Let y ex. Example 2 4e2x - 3ex 2ex Substituting yields 4y2-3y 2y y(4y - 3) 2y 4y y - 3 Don t forget to substitute back again. 2 4ex Practice Problems Factor the following. ) e2x - 2) e2x - ex - 6 3) e2x - ex - 2 4) 2e2x - 5ex - 3 Solutions ) e2x - 2) e2x - ex - 6 3) e2x - ex - 2 4) 2e2x - 5ex - 3 y2 - y2 - y - 6 y2 - y - 2 2y2-5y - 3 (y - )(y + ) (ex -)(ex + ) (y - 3)(y + 2) (ex - 3)(ex + 2) (y - 2)(y + ) (ex - 2)(ex + ) (2y + )(y - 3) (2ex + )(ex - 3)

2 A-2 The natural exponential function is used in every area of science. Example 3 Suppose that the number of bacteria present in a culture is given by N(t) 000 e (.)t. How many bacteria would be in the culture when t 4 hours? 000 e(.)(4) 000 e(.4) 49.8 rounds to,492 bacteria Practice Problems ) How many bacteria would be in the culture above when t 0 hours? 2) How long will it be before the number of bacteria reaches 0,000? Try to solve this by plugging in values for t. We will learn how to solve this a different way soon. Solutions ) 000 e(.)(0) 000 e() 2,78.3 rounds to 2,78 bacteria 2) try t 5 hours 000 e(.)(5) 000 e(.5) rounds to 4482 bacteria try t 20 hours 000 e(.)(20) 000 e(2) 7389 bacteria try t 24 hours 000 e(.)(24) 000 e(2.4),023 bacteria Natural Logarithm Function It is the inverse of the exponential function, which is f(x) ex. You may have tried different values, but you should have determined that the time to reach 0,000 bacteria is somewhat less than 24 hours. The natural logarithm function is f(x) ln(x). In stands for natural log. There are several properties and laws of the natural log function which you need to memorize. Use the directions that came with your scientific calculator to find and use the natural log key. (It may be marked LN.) Check the following relationships with your calculator, choosing any value you like for the variables. ) ln 0 2) ln e 3) ln ex X 4) elnx x when x 0 5) ln xy ln x + ln y 6) ln x/y In x - ln y 7) ln xa a In x Example 4 Determine the value of ln 2e in simplest terms. ln 2e ln 2 + ln e Law #5 above.69 + Use your calculator to find the natural log of 2.

4 Exponential and logarithmic functions can be manipulated in algebraic equations. Remember that as long as we do the same thing to both sides of an equation, we do not change the value of the equation. In the examples below, find the natural log of each side in order to simplify exponents and put the equation in a form that is easier to manipulate.

5 B- Lesson B - Limits Limits in life are boundary points. Usually they denote the highest or top number allowable. Speed its are the highest speed allowable which cars may tavel without breaking the law. A supermarket it of 2 quarts of strawberries on their store special means that you can buy up to 2 quarts per person and no more. In science an instrument might be accurate within /00th of an inch. In each case, the it is a real number. Mathematical its are similar, but are not identical, to the its we see in everyday life. In math, we refer to the it of a function. A function s it may or may not exist. If the it does exist, then the it will be a real number and it will be unique. Example Consider the following sequence:, /2, /3, /4, /5, /6,... /000000,... As we look at these numbers, what is happening to them? They are getting smaller and smaller, right? How small will they get? Will they reach 0? No, but they will get so close to zero as to be indistinguishable. Therefore, the mathematical it of these numbers is 0. In this case, the it exists and is uniquely 0. It is not approaching any other number except 0. Example 2 Now let s look at another sequence:, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,... 0,000,... 00,000, What is happening to these numbers? They are getting larger and larger and are approaching infinity. Is there a it? NO! If you say that the it is 00,000,000,000,003, then I can always find a bigger number in the sequence. Therefore, the it does not exist. Example 3 In geometry, consider a circle which has a polygon inscribed inside. If you begin with a 3-sided polygon (triangle), and continue to inscribe polygons with larger and larger numbers of sides, what happens? Notice that the area of the inscribed polygon gets closer and closer to the area of the circle. Does the inscribed polygon become a circle? No, but it gets close enough as to be indistinguishable. Therefore, the it exists and is uniquely the area of the circle. Historically, Archimedes used this exact reasoning to determine the area of circles before the discovery of pi. Now let s look at some functions on a graph, and see if we can understand its more fully. Consider the following function. f(x) Example 4 f(x) X +

6 B-2 A it in a graphical sense represents the anticipated height of a function. What would be the it of f(x) as we allow our X values to get closer and closer to 0? We could approach 0 by using negative numbers or positive numbers. A chart below shows numbers which are approaching X 0 from both perspectives. X f(x) X f(x) looking at positive values for X looking at negative values for X Either way we look, we see that as the X value of this function approaches 0, the f(x) value or the height of the function will be approaching. Indeed, f(0)! Thereore, the it exists and it is uniquely. Example 5 f(x) X + for all X except x 0 Graphically, we now have: f(x) Now what is the it as X approaches 0? It is still. Even though the value at X 0 is undefined, we can get SO close to X 0, and it still appears that f(x) is SO close to. How close is close enough? That is a discussion for Caluculus. f(x) Let s try a few more: Example 6 f(x) X2 What is the it of f(x) as X approaches -2? This one is simple. The graph will show the exact value of 4 when x -2. You could look at values on both sides of -2, but your answer will be the same. The it exists and it is uniquely equal to 4.

7 B-3 Example 7 X 2 X 2 X 2 The graph looks like: f(x) What is the it of f(x) as X approaches 2? We will need a table here, because the value of 2 cannot be substituted into the function. Therefore, the it of f(x) 3. Notice that the numerator of this function can be factored into (X + )(X - 2). Then, you can cancel the common factors, and you get (X ). The graph looks like f(x) X +, except that there is a hole at X 2. In fact, if you substitute x 2 into the new equation, f(x) X +, you get f(2) Now, let s work with mathematical notation to accurately describe what we have done so far. The appropriate it notation looks like the following: f(x) B X A where X A means that X is approaching a and the value of the it is B. X 2 X 2 In Example 7, we would express the it as follows: 3 X A X 2

8 B-4 Example 8 below: What about more serious holes and gaps in a function? Refer to the graph f(x) This type of function is commonly referred to as a step funcition. What is the it as X approaches 2 of this step function? X f(x) Approaching from the left of X 2 X f(x) Approaching from the right of X 2 As you can see, it depends on whether you approach X 2 from the right or from the left, as to what you would expect the height of the function to be. From the right, it appears that the it would be 2, and from the left, it appears that the it would be. Remember that we said that in order for the it to exist, that it had to be unique? Because of this, the it as X approaches 2, does not exist. Written in appropriate it notation, we get: f(x) Does not exist (DNE) x 2 For completeness, let s write Examples, 2, 4, and 6 in proper it notation. Example : Example 2: Example 4: Example 6: x X 0 x Does not exist x 0 X + X 2 4 x 2 Let s review:. Some its exist and some do not. 2. If the it exists, then it is a real number and it is unique. 3. The proper nototation for a it is: f(x) B x A 4. To evaluate the it, first try substituting A into the function, (i.e., try f(a).) 5. If you cannot evaluate the it by substituting, then try factoring. 6. If neither method works, then graph the function. 7. Finally, the it is simply the anticipated height of f(x) when X A.
