L22 Exponential Functions Statement If a and x are real numbers with a gt O and a 1 then y ax is a uniquely defined real number Laws of Exponents If s t a and b are real numbers with a gt O b gt 0 then The exponential function with the base a is a function of the form f X ax where 01 gt0 and 01721 The domain of f is the set of all real numbers 239 Example For fx cax a gt O a 721 c 72 O evaluate fQD f X Example For f x ax b a 2 O evaluate fX1fx Comparing Exponential and Linear Models For an exponential model f x cax a gt O a 72 1 c i O for unit increases in the input the output changes by a factor of a base fxlfxa For a linear model f x ax b a 72 O for unit increases in the input the output changes by an additive a slope fxlfxa 240 Example Find the appropriate model for each of the problem a Wages of an Assembly Line Worker A manufacturer pays its assembly line workers 1150 per hour In addition workers receive a piecework rate of 075 per unit produced Write the equation for the hourly wages Win terms of the number of units x produced per hour 241 b Size of a Population Under ideal conditions a certain bacteria population is known to double every hour Suppose that there are initially lOO bacteria Write the equation for the size of the population N after t hours 242 Graphing Exponential Functions x fx2 fltxgtlj 2quot 2 g 9 B E 7 7 6 6 5 5 3 3 239 2 139 1 S 74 73 2 1 n 1 2 3 A 5 75 7A 73 72 r n 1 2 3 A S 1 x 1 x Note Use these graphs as templates for graphing fxax with agt1 onthe left and 0lta lt1 on the right Graphing Exponential Functions Using Transformations Example Use the graph of f x 2x to graph the following Give the domain and range gx 2 2 639 hx 2x 2 j iffy m 2x 539 244 Properties of the Function f x ax a gt O a 1 l Domain Range 2 Points 41 01 and 101 are on the graph a 3 The line y O is the horizontal asymptote ifagt1then ax gtO as x gt oo if0ltalt1then ax gtO asx gtoo 4 fx ax is increasing if 01 gt1 decreasing if 0 lt a lt l 5 f x ax is a onetoone function Recall f x is a onetoone function means that f f v ltgt u v Therefore an equivalent form of the property 5 is a 2 av ltgt u v This property is useful for solVing some exponential equations 245 Example Solve the equations ETC 9x 3 246 The base 6 Consider the expression 1 for n 123 n The values for some natural n are listed below 3 n1 11 2 n n10 11 2593742 n n100 11 22704813 n n1oooo 11 22718145 n n1000000 11 22718280 n n1ooooooooo 11 22718281 n Note 11 gt271828 asn gt00 n We denote 271828 2 e and write lim1 e 71 00 n 247 Graghing y 8 Example Graph the function Find its domain and range x1 y e 3 Z48
