Warm Up Solve. 1. log 16 x = 2. log x = 3 3. log10,000 = x

2
Solve exponential and logarithmic equations and equalities. Solve problems involving exponential and logarithmic equations. Objectives

3
exponential equation logarithmic equation Vocabulary

4
An exponential equation is an equation containing one or more expressions that have a variable as an exponent. To solve exponential equations: Try writing them so that the bases are all the same. Take the logarithm of both sides.

5
When you use a rounded number in a check, the result will not be exact, but it should be reasonable. Helpful Hint

6
Solve and check. 9 8 – x = 27 x – 3 (3 2 ) 8 – x = (3 3 ) x – 3 Rewrite each side with the same base; 9 and 27 are powers of – 2x = 3 3x – 9 To raise a power to a power, multiply exponents. Example 1A: Solving Exponential Equations 16 – 2x = 3x – 9 Bases are the same, so the exponents must be equal. x = 5 Solve for x.

7
Example 1A Continued Check 9 8 – x = 27 x – – – The solution is x = 5.

8
Solve and check. 4 x – 1 = 5 log 4 x – 1 = log 5 5 is not a power of 4, so take the log of both sides. (x – 1)log 4 = log 5 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. Example 1B: Solving Exponential Equations Divide both sides by log 4. Check Use a calculator. The solution is x ≈ x = 1 + ≈ log5 log4 x –1 = log5 log4

9
Solve and check. 3 2x = 27 (3) 2x = (3) 3 Rewrite each side with the same base; 3 and 27 are powers of x = 3 3 To raise a power to a power, multiply exponents. Check It Out! Example 1a 2x = 3 Bases are the same, so the exponents must be equal. x = 1.5 Solve for x.

10
Check 3 2x = (1.5) The solution is x = 1.5. Check It Out! Example 1a Continued

11
Solve and check. 7 –x = 21 log 7 –x = log is not a power of 7, so take the log of both sides. (–x)log 7 = log 21 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. Check It Out! Example 1b Divide both sides by log 7. x = – ≈ –1.565 log21 log7 – x = log21 log7

12
Check Use a calculator. The solution is x ≈ – Check It Out! Example 1b Continued

13
Solve and check. 2 3x = 15 log2 3x = log15 15 is not a power of 2, so take the log of both sides. (3x)log 2 = log15 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. Check It Out! Example 1c Divide both sides by log 2, then divide both sides by 3. x ≈ x = log15 log2

14

Suppose a bacteria culture doubles in size every hour. How many hours will it take for the number of bacteria to exceed 1,000,000? Example 2: Biology Application Solve 2 n > 10 6 At hour 0, there is one bacterium, or 2 0 bacteria. At hour one, there are two bacteria, or 2 1 bacteria, and so on. So, at hour n there will be 2 n bacteria. Write 1,000,000 in scientific annotation. Take the log of both sides. log 2 n > log 10 6

16
Example 2 Continued Use the Power of Logarithms. log 10 6 is 6. nlog 2 > 6 nlog 2 > log log 2 n > Divide both sides by log n > Evaluate by using a calculator. n > ≈ Round up to the next whole number. It will take about 20 hours for the number of bacteria to exceed 1,000,000.

17
Example 2 Continued Check In 20 hours, there will be 2 20 bacteria = 1,048,576 bacteria.

You receive one penny on the first day, and then triple that (3 cents) on the second day, and so on for a month. On what day would you receive a least a million dollars. Solve 3 n – 1 > 1 x 10 8 $1,000,000 is 100,000,000 cents. On day 1, you would receive 1 cent or 3 0 cents. On day 2, you would receive 3 cents or 3 1 cents, and so on. So, on day n you would receive 3 n–1 cents. Write 100,000,000 in scientific annotation. Take the log of both sides. log 3 n – 1 > log 10 8 Check It Out! Example 2

19
Use the Power of Logarithms. log 10 8 is 8. (n – 1)log 3 > 8 (n – 1) log 3 > log log 3 n – 1 > Divide both sides by log 3. Evaluate by using a calculator. n > ≈ 17.8 Round up to the next whole number. Beginning on day 18, you would receive more than a million dollars. Check It Out! Example 2 Continued 8 log3 n > + 1

20
Check On day 18, you would receive 3 18 – 1 or over a million dollars = 129,140,163 cents or 1.29 million dollars. Check It Out! Example 2

21
A logarithmic equation is an equation with a logarithmic expression that contains a variable. You can solve logarithmic equations by using the properties of logarithms.

22
Review the properties of logarithms from Lesson 7-4. Remember!

Solve. Example 3A: Solving Logarithmic Equations Use 6 as the base for both sides. log 6 (2x – 1) = –1 6 log 6 (2x –1) = 6 –1 2x – 1 = x =x = Use inverse properties to remove 6 to the log base 6. Simplify.

24
Solve. Example 3B: Solving Logarithmic Equations Write as a quotient. log – log 4 (x + 1) = 1 x = 24 Use 4 as the base for both sides. Use inverse properties on the left side. 100 x + 1 log 4 ( ) = 1 4 log 4 = x + 1 ( ) = x + 1
