  • Properties of Logarithms
  • Properties of Logarithms As x gets smaller and approaches 0, the values of the function are negative with larger absolute values. That means when x is between 0 and 1, the exponent will be negative.
  • Properties of Logarithms As x gets smaller and approaches 0, the values of the function are negative with larger absolute values. That means when x is between 0 and 1, the exponent will be negative. The y-axis is an asymptote.
