### On the equation $\exp(a x+b)=\ln(x)$

I am confronted with: $$\exp(a x+b)=\ln(x)$$ for $a,b$ reals and $a<0$, $b>0$. I need the (unique) solution for $x$. My first target is (if it exists) an analytic solution in terms of ...

### Conditions required for $(z_{1}z_{2})^{\omega}=z_{1}^{\omega}z_{2}^{\omega}$, where $z_{1},z_{2},\omega\in\mathbb{C}$

I am having trouble finding the conditions on $z_{1}$ and $z_{2}$ in order for: $$(z_{1}z_{2})^{\omega}\equiv z_{1}^{\omega}z_{2}^{\omega}\qquad \forall\omega\in\mathbb{C}$$ My first step was to ...

### Is there a simple algorithm for exponentiating large numbers to large powers?

I've been thinking about this for some days, a multiplication is a lot of sums, so: $$75\times 75=\overbrace{75+75+75+75+75+75+75+75+\cdots}^{\text{75 times}}$$ But then, there is a simple algorithm ...

### weighted average with exponential weighting

I want to create weighted average, where weights depend on value of number. If I want exponential weights is this regular? $average = \log_e(\frac{\sum_{i=1}^n e^{v_i}}{n})$ Isn't it just average of ...

### Exponents with the same power

I've wanted to practice solving simple operations on exponents, so I've made a couple of equations to which I know the answers. $$5^x -4^x = 9$$ I feel really stupid, because I can't solve this one ...

### $(5^{2x}-1)(5^x)=1/5^x$ solve

I have the problem $(5^{2x}-1)(5^x) = 1/5^x$. I have already simplified it to $5^{3x}-1=1/5^x$ My question is when I do $\log$ base $5$ to the left side of the equation to get $3x-1$ by itself so ...

### Complex exponentiation

So I've got this question that is a bit difficult to ask, since it uses a term in my language that I can't properly translate into English. For $z\in\mathbb{C}^*$ and $a\in\mathbb{C}$ it would be ...

### Approximating Logs and Antilogs by hand

I have read through questions like Calculate logarithms by hand and and a section of the Feynman Lecture series which talks about calculation of logarithms. I have recognized neither of them useful ...

### show that $(1+ \frac {x}{n})^n < e^x$ and $e^x < (1- \frac{x}{n})^{-n}$ if $x<n$

If $n$ is a positive integer and if $x>0$,show that $(1+ \frac {x}{n})^n < e^x \quad$ and that $\quad e^x < (1- \frac{x}{n})^{-n} \quad$ if $x<n$ I proved the first one by the ...

### Equations with exponents

I can't remember how to solve equations that have exponent and a variable in them. This is somewhat embarrassing, because this used to be really easy for me. I know that logarithms are involved I just ...

### Question about basic exponential/logarithm properties

Solve for $k$: $$e^{k/2}=a$$ Solution: $$e^{2k}=a$$ $$k/2 = \mathbf{ln}a$$ $$k=2\mathbf{ln}a$$ $$= \mathbf{ln}a^2$$ My question is: why does $2\mathbf{ln}a = \mathbf{ln}a^2$? Why can you ...

### $\log(n)$ is what power of $n$?

Sorry about asking such an elementary question, but I have been wondering about this exact definition for a while. What power of $n$ is $\log(n)$. I know that it is $n^\epsilon$ for a very small ...

### For each of series find the smallest $k$, that $a_n = O(n^k)$

Hey I need you to check my solutions: a) $a_n = (2n^{81.2}+3n^{45.1})/(4n^{23.3}+5n^{11.3})$ This one is done from $\sum_{i=1}^{k} O(a_i(n)) = O(max\lbrace a_i,..,a_k \rbrace )$ So it's ...

### Something to the power of a logarithm

This is probably a very obvious question, but here goes... An answer in my textbook claims that $$3^{\log n} = n^{\log 3}$$ and that $$4n^2 (3/4)^{\log n} = 4n^{\log 3}$$ Why, using more basic ...

### Growth rate of $n^2$ vs $(\log_3(n))^3$

Which grows faster, $n^2$ or $(\log_3(n))^3$? How do I figure out which grows faster in general in these kinds of situations?

### Trying to convert a nasty logarithm into an exponential

I have the following equation that I must express in terms of $r$: $$\Delta V = \frac{\lambda}{2 \pi \epsilon_0} \ln(\frac{r}{R})$$ This is a pretty tough one. I am not sure how to get the r out of ...

### Solving an equation with a logarithm in the exponent

I try to solve the following equation: $$(N+1)^{\log_N{125}} = 216$$ I know the answer is 5 here but how could I rewrite the equations so I can solve it? I tried to take the log of both sides but ...

I am applying Chernoff bound for a Poisson process with mean $\lg n$. I am putting $\delta =4$. Hence, $Pr(X<(1+4)\mu)< (\frac{e^\delta}{(1+4)^{(1+4)}})^\mu$ $= (\frac{e^\delta}{5^5})^{\lg ... 4answers 219 views ### Can we prove$a^{\log_bn} = n^{\log_ba}\$?

Can we prove $$a^{\log_bn} = n^{\log_ba}?$$ I forget how to prove this theorem. I picked up one numbers for test, and they worked.
