Properties of Logarithms. 1. log a 1 = 0 since a 0 = 1. 2. log a a = 1 since a 1 = a. 3. log a a x = x and a log a x = x inverse property. 4. If log a x = log a y , then x = y . one-to-one property. Examples : Solve for x : log 6 6 = x. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

  • Properties of Logarithm

  • ExamplesExpand: 1. log3(2x) = log3(2) + log3(x)2. log4( 16/x ) = log4(16) log4(x)3. log5(x3) = 3log5(x)4. log2(8x4) log2(5) = log2(8) + log2(x4) log2(5)

  • ExamplesCondense: 1. log2(x) + log2(y) = log2(xy)2. log3(4) log3(5)= log3(4/5)3. 3log2(x) 4log2(x + 3) + log2(y) log2(x3y) log2((x + 3)4)

  • Natural Logarithm and eis used to denote

    then

  • Using the natural log - lnEvaluate the following lns:Without using a calculator find the value of:

  • The laws of natural logarithms

  • Find x, if Remember the base of a natural log is e.Rearrange in index form.Find x in each of the following: Take a natural log of both sides.Use the power rule.

  • The graph of exponential funtionThe graph of f(x) = ax, a > 1

  • Example 3xy22 4Example: Sketch the graph of f(x) = 2-x. State the domain and range.Domain: (, ) Range: (0, )

  • Transformation of exponential graphsExample: Sketch the graph of f(x) = 2 x + 2State the domain and range.xy24Domain: (, ) Range: (0, ) f(x) = 2 x + 2 f(x) = 2x ( 22 ) f(x) = 2x (4)

  • Example 3xy22 4Example: Sketch the graph of f(x) = -2x. State the domain and range.Domain: (, ) Range: (0, -)
