Math 111 Final Exam Review
5.1: Radicals and Rational Exponents
You should have your exponent laws imprinted in your gray matter. You should
be comfortable with
reducing radical and exponential expressions.
41. Simplify the expression
5.2: Exponential Equations and 5.2A: Compound Interest and the numbere
You need to be comfortable working with exponential equations. You need to be
able to set up
exponential equations from word problems. You need to be able to solve for variables in the exponent
using logarithms. You should know the formulas for compound interest.
Problems from 5.2: 19-23, 51-62, 64-76.
Problems from 5.2A: 1-29.
43. Hercules ate 7 grams of Uranium, and now he is sprouting eyes at an
exponential rate. He had two eyes
when he ate the Uranium. 3 hours later, Hercules has 14 eyes. Find an exponential function whose
input is the number of hours since Hercules ingested Uranium, and the output is the number of eyes
Hercules has. How many eyes will Hercules have after 24 hours? When will Hercules have 5000 eyes?
Give an exact answer and decimal approximation.
44. Recall the formula for continuous compounding is f(t) = Pert. You invest
500$ in an account with
7.5% interest, compounded continuously. How much will be in your account after 5 years? How long
will it take for your account to double? Give an exact answer and decimal approximation.
5.3: Common and Natural Logarithms
You should know the properties of Logarithms in general. Namely, they are the
inverse functions to
exponential functions, their domain and range...all the information in the box on p. 365.
Problems from 5.3: 1-36, 43-46, 84
5.4: Properties of Logarithms and 5.4A: Logarithmic Functions to Other Bases.
You need to be very comfortable with the Product Law, Quotient Law, and Power
Law. These are the
main tools for working with logarithms. You should be able to write sums and differences of logarithms
as a single logarithm.
Problems from 5.4: 1-31.
Problems from 5.4A: 1-60, 69 - 74
for a, b > 0, a≠b.
