1. Evaluate the exponential equation for three positive values of x, three negative values of x, and at x=0. Transform the second expression into the equivalent logarithmic equation; and evaluate the logarithmic equation for three values of x that are greater than 1, three values of x that are between 0 and 1, and at x=1. Show your work. Use the resulting ordered pairs to plot the graph of each function; please show graphs ...
2. Solve the problem. A rare baseball card was sold in 1990 for $285,000. The card was then resold in 1998 for $459,000. Assume that the card's value increases exponentially, and find an exponential function V(t) that fits the data ...(Round decimals to three places.)

y = 2x, x = 2y

(a) y = 2^x
x f(x) = 2^x
-3 0.1250
-2 0.2500
-1 0.5000
0 1.0000
1 2.0000
2 4.0000
3 8.0000

(b) x = 2^y
ln x = y ln 2
y = ln 2 x
x y = log 2 ...
