4.5 Day 1 Solving Exponential Equations

Solving exponential equations used basic algebra with an exponential (and sometimes logarithmic) twist. Use the One-to-One Property if you can…otherwise, ln both sides.

4.5 Day 2 Solving Logarithmic Equations

Solving logarithmic equations also uses basic algebra along with condensing logarithms. Sometimes you can use the One-to-One Property for logarithms and sometimes you will need to switch it back to an exponential equation.
