Ex: Graph an Exponential Function and Logarithmic Function
This video explains how to graph an exponential and logarithmic function on the same coordinate plane. The two functions are inverses.
Ex: Find the Inverse Function of an Exponential Function
This video explains how to determine the inverse function of an exponential function in the form f(x)=aebx
Inverse Properties of Logs
In this video we use the fact that logs and exponentials are inverses in order to simplify expressions.
Inverse Property of Exponentials and Logarithms
This video explains and applies the inverse property of exponentials and logarithms.
Wolfram Inverse Composition Rule
If f(x) is the inverse function of g(x), then f(g(x)) = g(f(x)) = x . In this Demonstration you can choose two functions f and g. The graphs of f and g are drawn with red and blue dashes. Choose the composition f(g(x)) or g(f(x)). The graph of the composition is drawn as a solid green curve. If it is the line y = x , the functions are inverses of each other. If the solid curve is only partly the same as the line y = x , the domain of the functions has to be restricted.
Select the exponent and logarithm functions and you will find that the composition is the green line y = x
