Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exponents have an infinite domain and finite range logarithms have a finite domain and infinite range

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it gave me D={2, 2, 0, 1, 2} R={0.25, 1, 4, 16, 64}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is not a function as 2 must map to two different values in the range and functions only have one output for any given input

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem just shows that and asks whether it logarithmic or exponential

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you meant 1 then this is exponential, if you plot the data it starts to increase slowly and then speeds up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about D={0.25, 1, 4, 16, 64} R={2, 1, 0, 1, 2}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(although all logarithmic functions are, are simply the inverse of an exponential function, so technically all logarithmic functions are exponential as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in that one they changed the domain and range so the first was exponential, this one is the inverse so it must be logarithmic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and how can i tell if a graph is logarithmic or exponential if im only given a graph, nothing else

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it starts off flat and then curves up (or down) it's exponential. If it starts off going up (or down) and flattens out it's logarithmic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh! ok, thank you :) do you know anything about equations containing radicals and exponents by any chance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how would i solve 1/4^3x=2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is it:\[(1/4)^{3x}=2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the x isnt attatched to the exponent,

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so: \[(1/4)^{3}x=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, and the fraction isnt in parenthesis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First raise 1/4 to the third power: 1/4^3 = 1/64 (4^3 = 4*4*4) so 1/64x = 2 multiply both sides by 64 x = 128

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait i made a mistake, its 1/4x^3=2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, that makes a little bit of a difference... First multiply both sides by 4 x^3 = 8 next raise both sides to the (1/3) power x = (8)^(1/3) x = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wht if i had 1/8x^63=5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Working backwards get rid of the 3 first 1/8x^6 = 8 next multiply by 8 x^6 = 64 now raise both sides to the 1/6 power x = (64)^(1/6) x = 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One way to get rid of exponents is to raise both sides to 1/n where n is the exponent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how come i have to make the exponent 1/6?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh! ok, but how does it equal to 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you have a calculator you can type in 64^(1/6) and it should give you the answer of 2. Or you can ask yourself what number times itself 6 times is 64? And then use guess and check to find 2. (I like the calculator way myself)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i see, what do i do if i have (x1)^2/313=3 i know i have to add 13 to both sides but what do i do with the exponent
