    Find the F inverse of 6 for a combined function - Algebraically

    Hello, I am stuck with this problem. I can see that the answer is "1" in the graphing calculator but not able to find it algebraically. Find F-1(6) for F(x)= ex-1+ 2lnx + 5x Any help will be appreciated.

    Just Want To Understand Why a Property of Logs works.

    Hello, So in my textbook, it stated that blogbm=m as though it were a fact. I have no clue why this works, so if someone could explain the reasoning behind this to me, I would appreciate it greatly (Rofl) thanks so much!

    exponential to logarithm

    Hi; I need to convert f(x) = 2(3/4)^((x+3)/2) - 8 to logarithmic form. y + 8 = 2(3/4)^((x+3/2) y/2 + 4 = (3/4)^((x+3)/2) log(y/2 + 4) = ((x+3)/2)log(3/4) not sure where to go from here or is it all wrong? Thanks.

    Logarithm question

    My question states \frac{{\log_{3} 36} {-2\log_{111} 111} {-112\log_{112} 1}}{{\log_3 2} + {\log_3 8}} So its asking me to evaluate without using the calculator, My steps were first off the numerators 2ns and 3rd terms became -2(1) and -112(0) leaving me with a single log on the top and the...

    Expanding Logarithmic Expressions. Not Understanding This One.

    I was working through a logarithm packet for practice and I got this one: log3(9x3)1/5 ,where 9x3 to the 1/5 is 9x3 root 5 (I think 1/5 is equal to radical 5, correct me if I'm wrong (Itwasntme)). After expanding, I got 1/5(2log3(3)+3log3(x)) However, the...

    Logarithm

    1.2(2.4)2x = 6(4.6)x I need to solve for x and I think the first step I've been taking in this problem might be what I'm doing wrong. I started by dividing 4.6x out ... can 2.42x be divided by 4.6x for (2.4/4.6)x? After that I divided 1.2 on both sides for (2.4/4.6)x = (6/1.2), took the ln of...

    Inverses of Functions containing the natural logarithm

    How would one approach taking the inverse of the function g(x)=x+3ln(x-2)? Can it be simplified to a rational function? Two attempts I've made: 1. Simplified to e^x=y+3(y-2) 2. Simplified to inverse y= cube root(e^(x+y)) +2

    Logarithm Rule in integral problem (Product)

    Is this how you would implement the logarithm rule for product? If it is then the answer would be 0, which I highly doubt since the original problem is taking the volume of a shaded region revolved about the x axis.

    inequality involving logarithm

    log base 2(x+4)>log base 2(x^2-2) 1) i log both side become x+4>(x^2-2) 2) i bring RHS to the LHS, getting x^2-x-6<0 3)then i factorise and i get (x-3)x+2)<0 4)then i get the answer -2<x<3 but the answer is totally different from what my teacher gave me my teacher answer is ✓2<x<3. why?

    Algebra 2 Logarithm challenge problem!

    privét! I am new to this forum! Well just a challenge for me, as much as I would like to be unfortunately I am not very algebra oriented! My dad said to use [log(base a)b]*[log(base b)x]=log(base a)x but I'm sure we never learned that in class and I want to know how to do this on my own! All...
