Wendell is looking over some data regarding the strength, measured in Pascals (Pa), of some building materials and how the strength relates to the length. The data are represented by the exponential function f(x) = 2x, where x is the length. Explain how he can convert this equation to a logarithmic function when strength is 8 Pascals.

    Does that say \(f(x) = 2^x\)

    We can replace f(x) with y. \[\Large y = 2^x \]The logarithmic equation is the inverse of this equation.

    This equation is equivalent to \( \large x = \log_2 y \)

    We can plug in 8 for y .

    yeah but you need to explain how he can convert this equation to a logarithmic function when strength is 8 Pascals.
