CHAPTER 5 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions



EXAMPLE 4







Calculating a Logistic Regression Model

Yeast cultures have a number of applications that are

a great benefit to civilization and have been an object

of study for centuries. A certain strain of yeast is

grown in a lab, with its population checked at 2-hr

intervals, and the data gathered are given in the

table. Use the data and a graphing calculator to draw

a scatterplot, and decide on an appropriate form of

regression. If a logistic regression is the best model,

attempt to estimate the capacity coefficient c prior to

using your calculator to find the regression equation.

How close were you to the actual value?



Solution







WORTHY OF NOTE

Notice that calculating a logistic

regression model takes the

calculator a few seconds longer

than for other forms.



C. You’ve just seen how

we can determine when a

logistic model is appropriate,

and how to apply a logistic

model to a set of data

After clearing the data lists, enter the input

values (elapsed time) in L1 and the output

values (population) in L2. For the viewing

window, scale the t-axis from Ϫ1 to 20 and the

P-axis from Ϫ100 to 700 to comfortably fit the

data. From the context and scatterplot, it’s

Ϫ1

apparent the data are best modeled by a logistic

function. Noting that Ymax ϭ 700 and the data

seem to level off near the top of the window, a

good estimate for c would be about 675. Using

logistic regression on the home screen (option B:Logistic),

we obtain the equation Y1 ϭ

Now try Exercises 25 and 26 ᮣ

When a regression equation is used to gather information, many of the equation

solving skills from prior sections are employed. Exercises 27 through 34 offer a variety of these equations for practice and warm-up.



D. Applications of Regression

Once the equation model for a data set has been obtained, it can be used to interpolate

or approximate values that might occur between those given in the data set. It can also

be used to extrapolate or predict future values. In this case, the investigation extends

beyond the values from the data set, and is based on the assumption that projected

trends will continue for an extended period of time.

Regardless of the regression applied, interpolation and extrapolation involve substituting a given or known value, then solving for the remaining unknown. We’ll

demonstrate here using the regression model from Example 3. The exercise set offers

a large variety of regression applications, including some power regressions and additional applications of linear and quadratic regression.

EXAMPLE 5







Using a Regression Equation to Interpolate or Extrapolate Information

Use the regression equation from Example 3 to answer the following questions:

a. What is the average circumference of a female child’s head, if the child is

21 months old?

b. According to the equation model, what will the average circumference be

when the child turns 312 years old?

c. If the circumference of the child’s head is 44 cm, about how old is the child?

Solution

a. Using function notation we have C1a2 Ϸ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln1a2. Substituting

21 for a gives:







Figure 5.63



C1212 Ϸ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln1212

Ϸ 46.9



Y1 ϭ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln x



substitute 21 for a

result



The circumference is approximately 46.9 cm. See Figure 5.63.

b. Substituting 3.5 yr ϫ 12 ϭ 42 months for a gives:

C1422 Ϸ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln1422

Ϸ 48.5

Figure 5.64

substitute 42 for a

result



The circumference will be approximately 48.5 cm. See Figure 5.63.

c. For part (c) we’re given the circumference C and are asked to find the age a in

which this circumference (44) occurs. Substituting 44 for C(a) gives the equation

44 ϭ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln X, so we set Y1 ϭ 39.8171 ϩ 2.3344 ln X and

Y2 ϭ 44. For the window size, we know the formula is valid for female infants

from 0 to 36 months, and from parts (a) and (b) a good range for the circumference

will be from 40 to 50 cm. This indicates an appropriate window might be [0, 40]

for x and [40, 50] for y. Using this window, we find the graphs intersect at about

(6, 44), showing that a female child with a cranial circumference of 44 cm

must be about 6 months old. See Figure 5.64.

Now try Exercises 37 through 44 ᮣ



D. You’ve just seen how

we can use a regression model

to answer questions and solve

applications



When extrapolating from a set of data, care and common sense must be used or results

can be very misleading. For example, while the Olympic record for the 100-m dash

has been steadily declining since the first Olympic Games, it would be foolish to think

it will ever be run in 0 sec. There is a large variety of additional applications in the

Exercise Set. See Exercises 45 through 62.



5.7 EXERCISES





CONCEPTS AND VOCABULARY



Fill in each blank with the appropriate word or phrase. Carefully reread the section if needed.



1. The type of regression used often depends on

(a) whether a particular graph appears to fit the

________ and (b) the ________ or ________ that

generated the data.



2. The final choice of regression can rarely be based

on the ________ alone. Relying on the basic

_________ and ________ of certain graphs can be

helpful.



3. To extrapolate means to use the data to predict

values ________ the given data.



4. To interpolate means to use the data to predict

values ________ the given data.



5. List the five steps used to find a regression equation

using a calculator. Discuss possible errors that can

occur if the first step is skipped. After the new data

have been entered, what precautionary step should

always be included?



6. Consider the eight toolbox functions and the

exponential and logarithmic functions. How many

of these satisfy the condition as x S q, y S q?

For those that satisfy this condition, discuss/explain

how you would choose between them judging from

scatterplot, then use the context and scatterplot

to find the regression equation. According to

the model, how much will Morgan weigh when

she reaches a height (length) of 39 in.? What

will her length be when she weighs 28 lb?

b. Use the (age, circumference) data to draw a

scatterplot, then use the context and scatterplot

regression equation and note its correlation

coefficient, and (b) find an exponential regression

equation and note its correlation coefficient. What

CHAPTER 5 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions



SUMMARY AND CONCEPT REVIEW

SECTION 5.1



One-to-One and Inverse Functions



KEY CONCEPTS

• A function is one-to-one if each element of the range corresponds to a unique element of the domain.

• If every horizontal line intersects the graph of a function in at most one point, the function is one-to-one.

• If f is a one-to-one function with ordered pairs (a, b), then the inverse of f exists and is that one-to-one function

f Ϫ1 with ordered pairs of the form (b, a).

• The range of f becomes the domain of f Ϫ1, and the domain of f becomes the range of f Ϫ1.

• To find f Ϫ1 using the algebraic method:

1. Use y instead of f(x).

2. Interchange x and y.

3. Solve the equation for y.

4. Substitute f Ϫ1 1x2 for y.

• If f is a one-to-one function, the inverse f Ϫ1 exists, where 1 f ‫ ؠ‬f Ϫ1 21x2 ϭ x and 1f Ϫ1 ‫ ؠ‬f 21x2 ϭ x.

• The graphs of f and f Ϫ1 are symmetric to the identity function y ϭ x.

EXERCISES

Determine whether the functions given are one-to-one by noting the function family to which each belongs and

mentally picturing the shape of the graph.

1. h1x2 ϭ ϪͿx Ϫ 2Ϳ ϩ 3

2. p1x2 ϭ 2x2 ϩ 7

3. s1x2 ϭ 1x Ϫ 1 ϩ 5

Find the inverse of each function given. Then show using composition that your inverse function is correct. State any

necessary restrictions.

4. f 1x2 ϭ Ϫ3x ϩ 2

5. f 1x2 ϭ x2 Ϫ 2, x Ն 0

6. f 1x2 ϭ 1x Ϫ 1

Determine the domain and range for each function whose graph is given, and use this information to state the domain

and range of the inverse function. Then use the line y ϭ x to estimate the location of three points on the graph, and use

these to graph f Ϫ1 1x2 on the same grid.

borrowed materials for an extended period. Suppose the fine for overdue DVDs is given by the function

f 1t2 ϭ 0.15t ϩ 2, where f (t) is the amount of the fine t days after it is due. (a) What is the fine for keeping a DVD

seven (7) extra days? (b) Find f Ϫ1 1t2, then input your answer from part (a) and comment on the result. (c) If a fine

of $3.80 was assessed, how many days was the DVD overdue?
