Inverse functions: Logarithms and Exponentials Fr. Chris’ Chapter 6 Overview

How long for how many? To make one photocopy takes 6 seconds To make 10 copies takes 15 seconds 30 copies takes how long? How many copies can be made in 1 minute?

Notice how if you do both functions, you end up where you began In general

Not all have inverses “Horizontal Line Test” Functions must be “one-to-one” to have an inverse function

6.1(403)#50

Check (using algebra)

Check(using graphic calc) Is it symmetric around the diagonal identity line? (Try 5.ZoomSquare)

Now try this one... What is the inverse of this?????

In general... “What power of b gives me A?” is written: so if then

6.2(414)#36

6.2(414)#44

What is e??????? See page 410 or Mathematica Can you find e on your calculator?

6.2(414)#48 remember how So both x=6 and x=-2 work!

6.2(415)#61

6.3 (425)#2, #6 and #10

6.3(426) #26 (no calc) So... To check with your calc:

The graph of log

Horizontal Shift

6.3(p426) #54 Right shift by 1...
