The inverse of an exponential function is a logarithm, they're sorta weird if you're new to them, so here's an example: \[ \log_2(8)\] The little 2 on the log is the base, and this is basically saying, "what power of 2 is this?" So since \(8=2^3\) then we can write: \[ \log_2(8)=3\] so the trick is if we have something like \(y=2^x\) the inverse will be to take the logarithm base 2 of both sides since: \[ \log_2(y) = \log_2(2^x)\] Notice that right side is saying what's the power on \(2^x\) ? Well that's just x! So we rewrite it: \[ \log_2(y) = x\] Since this is the inverse function we switch y and x (or in your case f(x) and x. to get: \[ \log_2(x) = y\]
