Objective: To graph exponential functions and inequalities To solve problems involving exponential growth and decay

Exponential Functions have the form: A constant raised to a variable power. f(x) = b x where b >0 & b ≠ 1

Enter into calculator and graph: f(x) = 2 x [2nd] [table] to see list of data points Notice how quickly exponential functions grow.

If b u = b v then u = v When b > 0 and b≠ 1 The graph of f(x) = b x always passes through the points (0,1) and (1,b) The graph of f(x) = b x is the reflection about the y-axis of the graph of f(x)= The graph of f(x) = b x has the horizontal asymptote y = 0. There is no vertical asymptote.

The domain of f(x) = b x is the set of real numbers: the range is the set of positive numbers. f(x) = b x is increasing if b > 1 ; f(x) = b x is decreasing if 0< b< 1. f(x) = b x is a one-to-one function since it passes the horizontal line test.

Compound Interest Exponential Growth or decay (bacteria/ radiation half life)

Compound interest means the each payment is calculated by including the interest previously earned on the investment.

In t hours the number of bacteria in a culture will grow to be approximately where N 0 is the original number of bacteria. At 1 PM the culture has 50 bacteria. How many bacteria does it have at 4 PM? at noon?

The average growth rate of the population of a city is 7.5% per year and is represented by the formula y=A(1.075) x, where x is the number of years and y is the most recent population of the city. The city’s population A is now 22,750 people. What is the expected population in 10 years?
