- 1. Exponential Functions T- 1-855-694-8886 Email- info@iTutor.com By iTutor.com
- 2. Exponential Function An exponential equation is an equation in which the variable appears in an exponent. Exponential functions are functions where f(x) = ax + B, where a is any real constant and B is any expression. For example, f(x) = e-x - 1 is an exponential function. Exponential Function: f(x) = bx or y = bx, where b > 0 and b ≠ 1 and x is in R For example, f(x) = 2x g(x) = 10x h(x) = 5x+1
- 3. NOT Exponential Functions f(x) = x2 – Base, not exponent, is variable g(x) = 1x – Base is 1 h(x) = (-3)x – Base is negative j(x) = xx – Base is variable
- 4. Exponential Equations with Like Bases Example #1 - One exponential expression. Example #2 - Two exponential expressions. Evaluating Exponential Function 32x 1 5 4 32x 1 9 32x 1 32 2x 1 2 2x 1 x 1 2 1. Isolate the exponential expression and rewrite the constant in terms of the same base. 2. Set the exponents equal to each other (drop the bases) and solve the resulting equation. 3x 1 9x 2 3x 1 32 x 2 3x 1 32x 4 x 1 2x 4 x 5
- 5. Exponential Equations with Different Bases The Exponential Equations below contain exponential expressions whose bases cannot be rewritten as the same rational number. The solutions are irrational numbers, we will need to use a log function to evaluate them. Example #1 - One exponential expression. 32x 1 5 11 or 3x 1 4x 2 32 x 1 5 11 32 x 1 16 ln 32x 1 ln 16 (2x 1)ln3 ln16 1. Isolate the exponential expression. 3. Use the log rule that lets you rewrite the exponent as a multiplier. 2. Take the log (log or ln) of both sides of the equation.

- 8. Domain of f(x) = {- ∞ , ∞} Range of f(x) = (0, ∞ ) bx passes through (0, 1) For b>1, rises to right For 0<b<1, rises to left bx approaches, but does not touch, x-axis, (x-axis called an assymptote) 0.00 5.00 10.00 15.00 20.00 25.00 30.00 35.00 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 f(x) x 2^x (0.5)^x Characteristics of f(x) = bx

Application: Compound Interest Suppose: - A: amount to be received P: principal r: annual interest (in decimal) n: number of compounding periods per year t: years n n r ptA 1)( Example What would be the yield for the following investment? P = 8000, r = 7%, n = 12, t = 6 years 612 12 07.0 18000A ≈ $12,160.84
