exponential equationsIn a book I'm reading an exponential equation is defined as an equation containing terms of the form a^x (a to the power of x), where x is a real number, a is a real number, a > 0 and a is not equal to 1. #2 20051226 08:19:58
Re: exponential equationsDid you get that maths book as a Christmas present? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20051226 16:40:11
Re: exponential equations
Nope, not true. 0^4 = 0^5.
Yea, but can you really call this exponential? If you do, then just about every single equation is exponential. Example: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
