Answer the following:
Suppose $f(x) = 2^x$. Evaluate the following; your answer must be one singular number with no exponents.
$f(-1)$
$f(0)$
$\sqrt[3]{f(6)}$
$f(5)$
You are given a function $F(x)$. Find two functions $f, g$ where $F = f \circ g$.
$F(x) = e^{\sin(x)}$
$F(x) = \sin(10^x)$
$F(x) = \log_{32}(e^x)$
$F(x) = e^{5x}$
$F(x) = (e^x)^4$
$F(x) = \ln(\sin(x))$
Draw two graphs of two functions, one of which is not one-to-one and one of which is one-to-one.
For each of the following functions, determine if they are inverses of each other.
$f(x) = 2x - 1, \ \ g(x) = \dfrac{x + 1}{2}$
$f(x) = \dfrac{1}{x}, \ \ g(x) = \dfrac{1}{x}$
$f(x) = \dfrac{1}{x - 1}, \ \ g(x) = x + 1$
$f(x) = \log_{5}(x), \ \ g(x) = 5^x$
$f(x) = e^\sqrt{x}, \ \ g(x) = (\ln(x))^2$
If $f$ is a one-to-one function and $f(6) = 17$, what is $f^{-1}(17)$?
Show why $f^{-1}$ is not the same function as $\dfrac{1}{f}$ with an example.
Hint: The function $f(x) = x^2$. Find $\dfrac{1}{f(x)}$ and use the inverse function property.
Combine into one logarithm:
$2 \ln 5 + 3 \ln 2$
$3\log_{10}(a + b) - \frac{1}{2}\log_{10}(a-b) - 2\log_{10}c$
$\ln(a + b) - \ln(a-b) - 2\ln c$
Solve each equation for $x$:
$\ln(x^2 - 1) = 3$
$e^{2x}-5e^x + 4 = 0$
Hint: Let $y = e^x$, and perform substitution described in Lecture Note III.
$2^{x-5}=3$
$\ln(3x - 10) = 2$
List the first five terms of these sequences. Make sure you have a list of numbers.
$a_n = \dfrac{1}{n^2}$
$a_n =(-1)^{n+1}2^n$
$a_n = \dfrac{2n}{n^2 + 1}$
$a_n = \cos\dfrac{n\pi}{2}$
Find a formula for $a_n$ for the following sequences:
