Exponential functions

An exponential function is the inverse of a logarithmic function. In this case, the unknown variable is the exponent. The exponential function is in the form of

where a is positive and different from 1. If a = 1, then this would be a constant function of 1.

Solving equations

If we can get the same base number to both sides of the equation, then this situation is optimal

If this is not possible, we use a 10-based logarithm to help us solve the equation

In some calculators you can choose the base of the logarithm. Then solving it is much quicker
