### Question Description

Question 1

Evaluate the function at the indicated value of x. Round your result to three decimal places.

Function: f(x) = 0.5^x Value: x = 1.7

 -0.308 1.7 0.308 0.5

Question 2

Solve for x. 3x = 81

 7 3 4 -3

### Question 3

Logarithms are the inverse of exponentials.

Question 4

The Logarithm Quotient Rule states:

 logb(x / y) = logb(x) + logb(y) logb(x / y) = logb(x) - logb(y) logb(x y) = y ∙ logb(x) logb(c) = 1 / logc(b)

Question 5

Use the properties of logarithms to expand the expression as a sum, difference, and/or constant multiple of logarithms. Assume all variables are positive.

log3 9x

log3 9 * log3 x

 log3 9 + log3 x

log3 9 - log3

none of these

### Question 6

Select the graph of the function. Indicate which graph is correct: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th

f(x) = 5x-1

Question 7

Evaluate the function at the indicated value of x. Round your result to three decimal places. Show your work

Value: x=2

### Question 8

The exponential equation y=bx is equivalent to the logarithmic equation x=logby

Question 9

Use the One-to-One property to solve the equation for x.

e(3x+5) = e6

 x = -1/3 x2 = 6 x = 1/3 x = 3

Question 10

Write the logarithmic equation in exponential form.

log8 64 = 2

82 = 16

 82 = 88

 82 = 64

 864 = 2

Question 11

Write the exponential equation in logarithmic form.

43 = 64

log64 4 = 3

 log4 64 = 3

 log4 64 = -3

 log4 3 = 64

Question 12

The given x-value is a solution (or an approximate solution) of the equation.

42x-7 = 16

x = 5

True

False

Question 13

Find the magnitude R of each earthquake of intensity I (let I0=1). (Hint: R=log (I/I0)

I = 19000

### Question 14 – show you work

pH is a measure of the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. It is defined as the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration. The equation is:

pH = - log [H+]

If an acid has an H+ concentration of 10-4, what's the pH?

### Question 15 – show your work

A general formula for exponential Growth can be given by:

A = P ekt

In your textbook, or using another reliable source, research what values, P, A, k and t represent and write your answer. (Hint: What do each of the variables stand for?)

### Question 16 – show your work

Continuously compounded interest means your principal is earning interest and you keep earning interest on the interest earned. Research the formula for Continuously Compounded Interest and write it below.

Exponential functions often involve the rate of increase or decrease of something such as a population, for example. If there is a population increase, it is a _______ function and when there is a decrease, it is a ________ function.

Question 20

Solve for x: log(3x−2)−log(2)=log(x+4)

 10 0 4 12
