CHAPTER 13 REVIEW EXERCISES

Concept check Exercises

Determine each of the following as being either true or false. If it is false, explain why.
  1. y =  − 6 − x is an exponential function.

  2. The logarithmic form of y =  − 2 − x is x =  − log − 2y . 

  3. log45 = log 4log 5

  4. log(1100) =  − 2

  5. 2 ln x = ln x2 − ln e

  6. If 2 ln x − 1 = ln x ,  then x = e .
