Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, 11e – Slide 7 of 55 Simplifying Exponential ExpressionsEXAMPLE SOLUTION Write each function in the form 2 kx or 3 kx, for a suitable constant k. (a) We notice that 81 is divisible by 3. And through investigation we recognize that 81 = 3 4. Therefore, we get (b) We first simplify the denominator and then combine the numerator via the base of the exponents, 2. Therefore, we get

Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, 11e – Slide 8 of 55 Graphs of Exponential Functions Notice that, no matter what b is (except 1), the graph of y = b x has a y-intercept of 1. Also, if 0 1, then the function is increasing.

9
Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, 11e – Slide 9 of 55 Solving Exponential EquationsEXAMPLE SOLUTION Solve the following equation for x. This is the given equation. Factor. Simplify. Since 5 x and 6 – 3x are being multiplied, set each factor equal to zero. 5 x ≠ 0.
