    The graphic of this function passes through P(3,1) \[F(x)=\log_{a}x \] Where a>0. What is a?

    so, x = 3 and f(3) =1 \(1 = \log_a 3 \) got this ?

    now use \(\Large \log_mn=p \implies n = m^p \)

    x ----> x+1 the graph moves one to left

    For a > 0, f(x - a) moves f(x) to the right by a units; f(x + a) moves f(x) to the left by a units.

    So the domain would be from -1 to infinite, the retriceptote would be x=-1

    and now this would pass through (0,0) instead of (1,0) :D
