Question 1. Find the inverse of the function h(x) = x2+3, where x>=0.

Answer: h(x) is a one to one function, representing it as y :

  y = 2x+3

 implies x = (y-3)/2

 Hence h-1 (x) = (x-3)/2 with domain restriction of x>= 3 to keep h-1 (x) >=0.

Question 2. Evaluate :

(a) Log 4 2

        Answer: by definition of logarithm, if log 4 2 be x :

                       4 x = 2

         Implies 2 2x = 2, since the bases are equal :

         2x=1,

         x = ½, hence Log 4 2 =1/2

   

(b) Log913

        Answer : using Logbx = logax/logab, we can write

        Log913 = In 13/ In 9

        = 2.5649/2.1972

        = 1.1673

(c) In e3

        Answer : using Log (xy) =Log x+Log y, we can write

        In e3 = In e + In 3

        = 1+1.0986

        = 2.0986

(d) Log 1/5 25

       Answer: by definition of logarithm, we can write

       (1/5)x = 25, where x=Log 1/5 25

       Implies (1/5)x =(1/5)-2  , as (1/5)-2 =25

       Implies x= -2

Question 3. Solve 23x-1 =16.

Answer: 23x-1 = 16

   Adding 1 to both sides :

               23x=16+1

               23x=17

   Dividing both sides by 23:

               x= 17/23

Question 4. Solve for x, log 5 (3x-4) = log 5(2x+7).

Answer: since logarithms are unique and one is to one function, we have

Log 5(3x-4) = Log 5(2x+7), implies

          3x-4 = 2x+7, as logarithmic base is same

          3x-2x=7+4, rearranging for x

           x= 11
