One of the topics of the course will be on exponential functions. Understanding exponential functions can allow you to quantitatively describe the growth structure of a model. You will not have a problems that look like this, however showing your work will be vital.

Question: f(x)= 5×

log²(5)+ 5log²(3)= log²(5) + log²(3⁵)=

log²(5×3⁵) or log²(1215)

Edits by John Roe: here is how to use LaTeX/MathJax to display these

[ f(x) = 5^x. ]

[ log(5) + 5log(3) = log(5) + log(3^5) = log(5times 3^5) = log(1215). ]
