1. ## Simple Question About "Graphs of Logarithmic Function"

Can you please explain to me the first row and the second one! I didn't get it yet.

This is the graph:

2. domain means what x values are rellevant for this function

range means what y values are possible as a result of the function

have a good day

3. In this case the domain of $f(x)= e^x$ is all real numbers because we can calculate $2^{x}$ for x any real number. And, of course, the result of that calculation is always a positive number and can be any positive real number. That is why the range is all positive real numbers.

For $f(x)= log_2(x)$, the domain is all positive numbers because $log_2(x)$ (or logarithm of any base) is defined for all positive numbers but not for 0 or any negative numbers. If $0< x< 1$, though, $log_2(x)< 0$ and $log_2(1)= 0$ so the range is all real numbers.

In fact, for any positive number, a, $a^x$ and $log_a(x)$ are inverse functions: if $y= a^x$ then $x= log_a(y)$ so they "swap" domain and range. That is also why the graphs are symmetric about the line y= x.
