Presentation Transcript

• Properties of Logarithmic Functions

• Objectives:

• Simplify and evaluate expressions involving logarithms.

• Solve equations involving logarithms.

• Standard:

• 2.8.11.N. Solve equations.

• am • an = am+n Product Property

am/an = am-n Quotient Property

(am)n = am*n Power Property

For m > 0, n > 0, b > 0, and b ≠ 1:

Product Property

logb (mn) = logbm + logbn

Quotient Property

logb (m/n) = logbm – logbn

** Just like the exponent rules!

log2 12

= log2 (2 ● 2 ● 3)

= log2 2 + log2 2 + log2 3

≈1 + 1 + 1.5850

≈3.5850

log2 1.5

= log2 3/2

= log2 3 – log2 2

≈1.5850 - 1

≈0.5850

C. log 2 18

D. log2 .75

A. log3 10 – log3 5

B. logb u + logb v – logb uw

C. log if possible.4 18 – log4 6

D. logb 4x - logb 3y + logb y

Power Property of Logarithms if possible.

For m > 0, b > 0, b ≠ 1, and any real number p:

logb mp = p logb m

Ex 3.

Evaluate log5 254

Log5 254 = 4 log5 25

= 4 ● 2

= 8

Power Property of Logarithms if possible.

Ex 4.

Evaluate log3 27100

Exponential- Logarithmic Inverse Properties: if possible.

For b > 0, b ≠1:

logb bx = x and blogbx = x for x > 0.

A. 3log34 + log5 25

B. log2 32 – 5log53

C. if possible.

7log711 + log381

D.

log885 +3log38
