In this chapter, we will analyze two new types of functions, exponents and logarithms. Up until now, the variable has been the base, with numbers in the exponent; linear, quadratic, cubic, etc. Exponential functions have the variable in the exponent. Logarithmic functions are the inverse of exponential functions. We will graph these functions, solve equations, and use them for modeling real-life situations.
In this chapter you'll learn about exponential and logarithmic functions. We will graph these functions and solve equations. We will also learn about the properties of logarithms and the natural number, e.
