IN THIS CHAPTER
Investigating exponential functions and rules of exponents
Introducing laws of logarithms and simplifications
Solving exponential and logarithmic equations
Exponential growth and decay are natural phenomena. They happen all around us. And, being the thorough, worldly people they are, mathematicians have come up with ways of describing, formulating, and graphing these phenomena. You express the patterns observed when exponential growth and decay occur mathematically with exponential and logarithmic functions.
