Solving Equations Involving Logarithms

When we have a variable in an exponent, we need to move it out of the exponent to determine it's value. To do that, we use the laws listed on the laws of logarithm page. Also, if the variable is inside a logarithm, we use exponentials to get it out of the logarithm. Here is how it works.

Okay, after working these practice problems, you will be ready to tackle some application problems involving exponentials and logarithms, starting with exponential growth and decay.

Practice

Unless otherwise instructed, solve these problems using the exponential $$e$$, giving your answers in exact terms.
