  12. Find the equivalent natural log.
  13. Find the equivalent equation for ln x = y.

  14. Find the equivalent forms.

  15. Solve the equation

  16. Express  \ln a+\frac{1}{2}\ln b as a single logarithm.

  17. The change of base formula says that
    For any positive number  a(a{\neq}1), we have  log_a{x}=.

  18. Sketch the graph of the function y=\ln (x-2)-1.

  19. Find the inverse of  \sin ^{-1}x=y.

  20. Evaluate  \tan (\arcsin \frac{1}{3}).
  1. Re-write the equation:
  2. Solve this equation for x:
  3. Interchange x and y:
  4. So, inverse function is:
ln x
Let , so
Then we can draw a right triangle with angle θ as in the figure

and deduce from the Pythagorean Theorem that the third side has length

This enables us to read from the triangle that
