Unit 6 - Objective 2 - Graphs of y=b^{x}and y=log_{b}x

**Quick Review**

The exponential function y=b^{x}has a graph, which is a smooth curve.

**Or**

You can sketch the exponential curve by plotting some points. Plot at least 3 points

**Example 1**

Sketch y=5^{x} pick points for x

**Example 2**

Sketch y=(1/2)^{x}

The logarithmic function y=log_{b}x is also a smooth curve

**Example 3**

Sketch y=log_{b}x

You can rewrite y=log_{b}x as an exponential function 5^{y}=x (Plug in values for y and figure out x)
