LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this topic, you should be able to: 1. 2. 3. Calculate equations involving exponentials and logarithms; Sketch graphs of exponential and logarithm functions; and Solve problems using the applications of the two functions.

INTRODUCTION

Both exponential and logarithm functions are one-to-one functions. The inverse function of an exponential function is called the logarithm function. This topic will discuss how these two functions associate with one another.

Logarithm with base of 10 is known as common logarithm, and is written as log x = log x = lg x. Logarithm with base e, is called natural logarithm, denoted by log e x = ln x.

6.5.1

Exponential functions can be applied into growth and decay processes. The formula for total growth is

P = P0 ert

Where

P P0 r t

= number of residents after t years. = number of original residents. = percentage (rate) of growth = time period

Example: Suppose the total number of residents in a given town is 20,000 and the rate of growth of the residents is 5% per year. (a) (b) Determine the total number of residents in this town in the period of 6 years from now. How many years will it take for the number of residents to double?

108 X

TOPIC 6

Solution: (a) Substitute all the given values into the formula to find the value of P.

= 5/100 = 0.05

= 26997 Hence, the number of the town residents after six more years is 26997. (b) Doubling the number of residents implies P = 2Po. Substituting P with 2Po and r = 0.05 into the formula to find the value for t.

The numbers of residents will double in about 14 years. The formula for decay process is

P = P0 e -rt

Example: Suppose a radioactive element is going through power decay after t days based on exponential function P = 100 e 0.075t. How much of the quantity is left after 20 days?

The total amount of money, denoted by S is the compound amount for a sum of money P compounding after n-th year, where the interest is payable k times at the rate of r% per annum, is given by the formula below:

r S = P 1 + k

nk

Where: S = compound amount or the prospective value P = initial investment or the principal value r = interest rate per annum k = number of interest paid (compound) in a year n = number of year Example: If RM1000 is invested at the rate of 6% per annum, compounding (payable) every quarterly, what would the total amount be in the account after 10 years? Solution:

S = ?, P = 1000,

Then

r = 6% = 0.06,

n = 10

r S = P 1 + k

(10 )( 4 )

S = 1000 (1.81402 )

TOPIC 6

Example: Determine the principal amount of a loan, given that the prospective amount payable after 10 years is RM21,589.20 and the compound rate of 8% per annum, compounding (payable) on yearly basis. Solution:

S = 21,589.20,

Then

P = ?,

r = 8% = 0.08,

n = 10

RM10,000; 8% per annum compounding yearly; 5 years. RM7600; 7.26% per annum compounding on quarterly basis; 5 years and 8 months. RM2300; 5.75% per annum compounding daily; 150 days. (assume 1 year = 365 days)

Determine the principal amount, given the following compound values, compound interest rates and time periods: (a) (b) (c) (d) RM16,084.82; 6% per annum compounding monthly; 14 months. RM10,197.02; 5.3% per annum compounding daily; 135 days. (assume 1 year = 365 days) RM6,657.02; 12.6% per annum compounding every 2 months; 10 months.

Visit the following websites: (i) (ii) http://webmath.amherst.edu/qcenter/logarithms/index.html for questions regarding logarithm; http://www.webster-on-line-dictionary.org/definitions/english/ LO%5Clogarithm.html for further discussion; and

Exponential function and its inverse, i.e. logarithm function, form graphs reflection upon a line y = x. The properties of exponentials and logarithms have to be grasped when tackling problem solving questions. In addition, the skills to convert equations in the form of exponential to logarithm form, and vice-versa are equally significant.
