Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. 5.4 Properties of Logarithmic Functions  Convert from logarithms of products, powers, and quotients to expressions in terms of individual logarithms, and conversely.  Simplify expressions of the type log a a x and.

Slide 5.4 - 4 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Logarithms of Products The Product Rule For any positive numbers M and N and any logarithmic base a, log a MN = log a M + log a N. (The logarithm of a product is the sum of the logarithms of the factors.)

Slide 5.4 - 5 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Express as a single logarithm: Solution:

Slide 5.4 - 6 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Logarithms of Powers The Power Rule For any positive number M, any logarithmic base a, and any real number p, (The logarithm of a power of M is the exponent times the logarithm of M.)

Slide 5.4 - 7 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Examples Express as a product. Solution:

Slide 5.4 - 8 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Logarithms of Quotients The Quotient Rule For any positive numbers M and N, and any logarithmic base a, (The logarithm of a quotient is the logarithm of the numerator minus the logarithm of the denominator.)
