Chapter 9-8 Graph Logarithmic Functions Graphs of Logarithmic Functions For all logarithmic functions of the form,where a > 0, a ≠ 1, and x > 0 1.The domain of the function is (0, ∞). 2.The range of the function is (-∞, ∞). 3.The graph passes through the points, (1, 0), and (a, 1).

9 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Chapter 9-9 Graph Logarithmic Functions Example Graph y = log 2 x. State the domain and range of the function. In this equation, y = log a x, where a = 2. y = log 2 x means x = 2 y. Using x = 2 y, construct a table of values. The domain, is {x|x > 0} and the range is (-∞, ∞).
