12 M = M + M i = M ( 1 + i ) = C ( 1 + i )² 11 Sum of money M = C + C i = C ( 1 + i ) 1 M = C ( 1 + i ) x Its great! where the variable x can indicate also fractional values of time. ( 1 + i ) > 1 Compound interest

General exponential function y = a x a > 0 a > 1 0 < a < 1 a = 1 + Its domain is the set of real numbers R, while its codomain is the set of real positive numbers R x є R

7
y = 2 - x y = 3 - x Key: X Y O (0,1) 1

8
If a = 1 X Y O (0,1) 1 y = 1 Third condition

9
y = 2 x - x Key: X Y O (0,1) 1 The symmetry about the y axis

10
In fact if we apply the equations of symmetry about the y axis to the function y = a we obtain the following curve: Y = a - x y = a x X = - x Y = y This property is true for every pair of exponential functions of this type: y = a x - x x

11
the injectivity the surjectivity the exponential function is bijective Properties of the exponential function so its invertible

12
X Y O (0,1) (1,0) If a > 1 y = log x a y = a x y = x Logarithmic function

13
If 0 < a < 1 y = log x a y = a xX Y (0,1) (1,0) y = x O Logarithmic function

14
a > 1 Let C and C be two curves both passing through a point P; we say that C is steeper than C in P if the slope of the tangent in P to C is greater than the one of the tangent in P to C. DEFINITION the exponential function grows faster than any polynomial function

15
X Y O (0,1) 1 y = 2 x y = x + 2 x + 1 2 Key: y = 2 x + 1 y = ln2 x + 1 P

16
Eulers number e Values of a Exponential function Slope m a = 2y = 2m = 0.6931 a = 2.5 y = 2.5 m = 0.9163 a = 2.7y = 2.7m = 0.9933 a = 2.71y = 2.71m = 0.9969 a = 2.718y = 2.718m = 0.9999 a = 2.719y = 2.719m = 1.0003 x x x x x x this means that theres a value of a between these two values for which the slope of the tangent in P is equal to 1. a 2.718 then m < 1, If a grows, m also grows a 2.719 then m > 1;

17
The exponential function having base equals e is called a natural exponential function and its equation is: y = e x It is an irrational number and a transcendental number because it isnt the solution of any polynomial equation with rational coefficients. e = 2.7 This number is called Eulers number e in honour of the mathematician who discovered it.

y = e x y = x + 1 Key: X Y O (0,1) 1 y = e x y = x + 1 45 °

Y = - a x y = a x X = x Y = - y or compressions.2) translations,3) dilations 1) symmetries, Graphs of non-elementary exponential functions: 1) if we apply the equations of the symmetry about the x axis to the function y = a we obtain the following curve: x

20
2) if we apply the equations of a translation by a vector v having components (h,k) to the function y = a we obtain the following curve: x Y = a + k Y – k = a X - h y = a x X = x + h Y = y + k X - h 3) if we apply the equations of a dilation to the function y = a we obtain the following curve: x y = a x X = h x Y = k y = a Y k X h

29
9) the equation y = - 2 + 1 can be rewritten as follows: x + 1 this equation represents the symmetrical curve of the function y = 2 - 1 about the x axis y = - ( 2 - 1 ) x + 1Y (0,1) 1 O (0,-1) X y = 2 - 1 x +1 Key: y = - (2 - 1 ) x +1
