2. Scientific Notation
Scientific notation uses exponents to rewrite lengthy numbers. The properties of exponents in the previous section can be applied to solve computations with scientific notation. This helps remove error when writing numbers with several zeros or decimal places. We can … Continue reading
3. Writing and Graphing Exponential Functions
An exponential function is a function of the form:where a≠0, b>0, and b≠1. Exponential functions are nonlinear functions. In other words, we will not get a straight line, but rather a curve when we graph this function. Here is the graph … Continue reading
1. Applying the Properties of Exponents to Simplify Expressions
You can use the properties of exponents to simplify expressions. Check out the following properties of exponents. This is another one of those topics that needs to be as second nature as breathing for you…I mean, we’re talking spinal reactions! … Continue reading
