Lesson Summary:

The lesson teaches how to solve exponential equations using the one-to-one property of logs. By isolating the variable and taking the logarithm with the same base as the exponential term, the equation can be solved for the variable. The inverse property of logarithms is also used to simplify the equation. Finally, the change of base formula is used to evaluate the logarithm and find the value of the variable.

Lesson Description:

Solving exponential equations by using one to one property of logs

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
