Objectives Write equivalent forms for exponential and logarithmic functions. Write, evaluate, and graph logarithmic functions.

**How many times would you have to double $1 before you had $8?**

You could use an exponential equation to model this situation. 1(2x) = 8. You may be able to solve this equation by using mental math if you know 23 = 8. So you would have to double the dollar 3 times to have $8.

**How many times would you have to double $1 before you had $512?**

You could solve this problem if you could solve 2x = 8 by using an inverse operation that undoes raising a base to an exponent equation to model this situation. This operation is called finding the logarithm. A logarithm is the exponent to which a specified base is raised to obtain a given value.

4
**You can write an exponential equation as a logarithmic equation and vice versa.**

Read logb a= x, as “the log base b of a is x.” Notice that the log is the exponent. Reading Math

**Example 1: Converting from Exponential to Logarithmic Form**

Write each exponential equation in logarithmic form. Exponential Equation Logarithmic Form 35 = 243 25 = 5 104 = 10,000 6–1 = ab = c The base of the exponent becomes the base of the logarithm. log3243 = 5 1 2 1 2 log255 = The exponent is the logarithm. log1010,000 = 4 1 6 log = –1 1 6 An exponent (or log) can be negative. logac =b The log (and the exponent) can be a variable.

Check It Out! Example 1 Write each exponential equation in logarithmic form. Exponential Equation Logarithmic Form 92= 81 33 = 27 x0 = 1(x ≠ 0) The base of the exponent becomes the base of the logarithm. a. log981 = 2 b. log327 = 3 The exponent of the logarithm. The log (and the exponent) can be a variable. c. logx1 = 0

**Example 2: Converting from Logarithmic to Exponential Form**

Write each logarithmic form in exponential equation. Logarithmic Form Exponential Equation log99 = 1 log = 9 log82 = log = –2 logb1 = 0 The base of the logarithm becomes the base of the power. 91 = 9 The logarithm is the exponent. 29 = 512 1 3 1 3 8 = 2 A logarithm can be a negative number. 1 1 16 4–2 = 16 Any nonzero base to the zero power is 1. b0 = 1

A logarithm is an exponent, so the rules for exponents also apply to logarithms. You may have noticed the following properties in the last example.

10
**A logarithm with base 10 is called a…. common logarithm.**

If no base is written for a logarithm, the base is assumed to be 10. For example, log 5 = log105. You can use mental math to evaluate some logarithms.

**Example 3A: Evaluating Logarithms by Using Mental Math**

Evaluate by using mental math. log 0.01 -2 = ________ 10x = 0.01 The log is the exponent. 10–2 = 0.01 Think: What power of 10 is 0.01? log 0.01 = –2

12
**Example 3B: Evaluating Logarithms by Using Mental Math**

Evaluate by using mental math. log5 125 3 = ________ 5x = 125 The log is the exponent. 53 = 125 Think: What power of 5 is 125? log5125 = 3

15
**-1 Check It Out! Example 3b Evaluate by using mental math. log250.04**

16
**Exponential and logarithmic operations undo each other since they are inverse operations.**

**Because logarithms are the inverses of exponents, the inverse of an exponential function, such as**

y = 2x, is a logarithmic function, such as y = log2x. You may notice that the domain and range of each function are switched. Domain Range
