Solve problems involving exponential and logarithmic equations.**Vocabulary**exponential equation logarithmic equation**An exponential equation is an equation containing one or**more expressions that have a variable as an exponent. To solve exponential equations: • Try writing them so that the bases are all the same. • Take the logarithm of both sides.**Helpful Hint**When you use a rounded number in a check, the result will not be exact, but it should be reasonable.**Example 1A: Solving Exponential Equations**Solve and check. 98 – x = 27x – 3 (32)8 – x = (33)x – 3 Rewrite each side with the same base; 9 and 27 are powers of 3. 316– 2x = 33x – 9 To raise a power to a power, multiply exponents. 16 – 2x = 3x – 9 Bases are the same, so the exponents must be equal. Solve for x. x = 5**Example 1A Continued**Check 98 – x = 27x – 3 98 – 5275 – 3 93 272 729 729 The solution is x = 5.**log5**log5 x–1 = log4 log4 x = 1 + ≈ 2.161 Example 1B: Solving Exponential Equations Solve and check. 4x – 1= 5 5 is not a power of 4, so take the log of both sides. log 4x – 1 = log 5 (x– 1)log 4 = log 5 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. Divide both sides by log 4. CheckUse a calculator. The solution is x ≈ 2.161.**You Try! Example 1a**Solve and check. 32x = 27 Rewrite each side with the same base; 3 and 27 are powers of 3. (3)2x = (3)3 To raise a power to a power, multiply exponents. 32x = 33 2x = 3 Bases are the same, so the exponents must be equal. x = 1.5 Solve for x.**You Try! Example 1a Continued**Check 32x = 27 32(1.5)27 33 27 27 27 The solution is x = 1.5.**log21**log21 –x = log7 log7 x = – ≈ –1.565 You Try! Example 1b Solve and check. 7–x = 21 21 is not a power of 7, so take the log of both sides. log 7–x = log 21 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. (–x)log 7 = log 21 Divide both sides by log 7.**You Try! Example 1b Continued**CheckUse a calculator. The solution is x ≈ –1.565.**log15**3x = log2 You Try! Example 1c Solve and check. 23x = 15 15 is not a power of 2, so take the log of both sides. log23x = log15 Apply the Power Property of Logarithms. (3x)log 2 = log15 Divide both sides by log 2, then divide both sides by 3. x ≈ 1.302**You Try! Example 1c Continued**CheckUse a calculator. The solution is x ≈ 1.302.**Example 2: Biology Application**Suppose a bacteria culture doubles in size every hour. How many hours will it take for the number of bacteria to exceed 1,000,000? At hour 0, there is one bacterium, or 20 bacteria. At hour one, there are two bacteria, or 21 bacteria, and so on. So, at hour n there will be 2n bacteria. Write 1,000,000 in scientific annotation. Solve 2n > 106 log2 2n > log2 106 Take the log2 of both sides.**Example 2 Continued**log2 2n > log2 106 n> log2 106 Log2 2n is n. Evaluate by using change of base and a calculator. > n > ≈ 19.94 Round up to the next whole number. It will take about 20 hours for the number of bacteria to exceed 1,000,000.**Example 2 Continued**Check In 20 hours, there will be 220 bacteria. 220 = 1,048,576 bacteria.**You Try! Example 2**You receive one penny on the first day, and then triple that (3 cents) on the second day, and so on for a month. On what day would you receive at least a million dollars. $1,000,000 is 100,000,000 cents. On day 1, you would receive 1 cent or 30 cents. On day 2, you would receive 3 cents or 31 cents, and so on. So, on day n you would receive 3n–1cents. Write 100,000,000 in scientific annotation. Solve 3n – 1 > 1 x 108 log3 3n –1 > log3 108 Take the log3 of both sides.**8**8 log 3 log3 n – 1 > n > + 1 You Try! Example 2 Continued log3 3n –1 > log3 108 n – 1> log3 108 log3 3n-1 is n-1. log Evaluate by using change of base and a calculator. log Round up to the next whole number. n > ≈ 17.8 Beginning on day 18, you would receive more than a million dollars.**You Try! Example 2**Check On day 18, you would receive 318 – 1 or over a million dollars. 317 = 129,140,163 cents or 1.29 million dollars.**A logarithmic equation is an equation with a logarithmic**expression that contains a variable.
