Laura’s Exponent, Inverse and Logarithm

By: Yuri G. Felipe

Laura started from her chair,

Flung her arms up in the air,

Clutched her hair:

“Lizzie, Lizzie, Do you know that kind of function?”

For my sake please help me to answer the question?

Must your mind like mine be working,

Your young mind like mine must not be wasted,

Undone in mine undoing

And ruined in my ruin,

Thirsty, cankered, goblin-ridden?”—

She clung about her classmate,

Asked and asked and asked her:

her tears began to appear,

Refreshed her shrunken eyes,

Dropping like rain

After long sultry drouth;

Lizzie tell the answer to Laura.

Telling that it is an Exponential Function,

Elucidating that if a > 0 and a ≠ 1, then the exponential function with a base a,

Is the Function f defined by f(x) = ax, where x is any real number.

Tears were replaced with happiness to Laura.

Lizzie, made an excellent explication,

Her locks streamed like the torch

Borne by a racer at full speed,

Or like the mane of horses in their flight,

Or like an eagle when she stems the light

Straight toward the sun,

Or like a caged thing freed,

Or like a flying flag when armies run.

Love of graph of Exponential Function ,

In the form f(x) = ax, where a > 1.

The characteristics of the graph, proves to be exponential.

The domain of the function f(x) = 2x is the set of real numbers,

While the range is the set of all positive real numbers.

It’s y-intercept is 1

And there is no x intercept,

For x > 0, the graph grows very rapidly,

For x < 0, the axis serves as the asymptote for the graph.

The affection of Exponential Function,

In the form f(x) = ax, where 0 < a < 1.

Its features of the graph, is a proof to be part of exponential,

It is a decreasing function,
As x takes on larger and larger values,

The function approaches but never attains the value zero,

But as the value of x decreases, the function increases.

Laura learned to burn the midnight oil,

For understanding Exponential Equations,

That is bx = a, where b > 0 and b ≠ 1.

As a result of its sacrifices,

She loves to solve exponential equation.

Is in it inverse function?

If function f is one-to-one,

If no two ordered pairs in the function,

Have the same ordinate and abscissas.

Seems to be critical this way of Logarithmic Function

For all positive real numbers x and a, a ≠1,

there exists a real number y such that y = logax,

if and only if x = ay.

Laura is crying for their next topic,

It’s so difficult.
