Solving Exponential and Logarithmic Equations Name:

Solve each equation algebraically. If the equation can be solved using like bases, w ithout^calculator,
give exact values. Otherwise, approximate answers to the nearest hundreth, where needed. For problems
9 and 10, check your answer graphically. (Be sure to show all appropriate work!)
