Course: College Algebra
Topic: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Subtopic: Exponential and Logarithmic Equations


Much of the material in this lesson is review from an intermediate algebra course, particularly solving basic exponential or logarithmic equations. Our focus will be to expand on the basic processes, bump up the level of difficulty, and tackle some interesting and challenging equations that integrate several methods of simplifying and solving (e.g. using the properties of logarithms or converting between logarithmic and exponential forms). May your knowledge of these functions grow exponentially ;-)


By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:


Terms you should be able to define: exponential equation, logarithmic equation
