Exponential functions


To graph exponential functions, make a table, plot the points and connect them with a smooth curve. x f(x) g(x) -1 0 1 2Domain:Range:y -intercept:4Translations y = bx - original graph

y = abx-h + k

k - positive - moves graph upk - negative - moves graph down

h - positive - to the righth - negative - to the left

a < 0 - reflected over x - axisa > 1 - stretched0< a < 1 - compressed

To solve exponential equations, get the bases equal.

Solve for x:

One to one property!

Bases must be the same

BONUS!!Compound Interest FormulasAfter t years, the balance A in an account with principal P and annual interest rate r (in decimal form) is given by the following formula:1) For n compounding per year:

Find the account balance after 20 years if $100 is placed in an account that pays 1.2% interest compounded twice a month.If $350,000 is invested at a rate of 5% per year, find the amount of the investment at the end of 10 years for the following compounding methods:a) Quarterly b) MonthlyContinuously Compound InterestA = PertJoan was born and her parents deposited $2000 into a college savings account paying 4% interest compounded continuously. What would be the balance after 15 years.exponential decay:

P = initial amount(1 - r)/(1 + r) is the decay/growth factor, r is the decay rate0 < r < 1 t is the time periodA = final amountYou bought a used car for $18,000. The value of the car will be less each year because of depreciation. The car depreciates (loses value) at the rate of 12% per year. Write an exponential decay model to represent the situation then use that model to estimate the value of the car in 8 years.

exponential growth:

Graph and find the average rate of change in value from year 0 to year 4 t y

A logarithm function is another way to write an exponential function

y is the logarithm, a is the base, x is the numberWe can now convert from one form to the other.

Rewrite as a exponential equation:

Rewrite as a logarithm:

To find the exact value of a logarithm (or evaluate), we can change the equation to an exponential one.

11.3/11.4 Sum of Geometric Sequences

Nth term of geometric sequence: (this is used to find any of the items or terms) an = a1rn-1

a1 = 1st termr = common ratio (divide any term by the prior term)n = how many termsWrite an equation for the nth term of a geometric sequence -.25, 2, -16, 128, ...Find the equation for the geometric sequence: If a3 = 16, and r = 4

The geometric means are terms between non-consecutive terms of a geometric sequence.Find the 4 geometric means between .5, __, __, __, __, 512
