so, i broke the e^(2ln|t|) into to parts:

e^2 times e^(ln|t|) which equals t (from the top identity)

so im left with e^2 times t. which is te^2

but the book says it equals t^2..so what happened to the e? (exponential function)

you haveCinderBlockFist said:

but the book says it equals t^2..so what happened to the e? (exponential function)

e^2 e^(ln t) = e^(2+ln t),

which is incorrect.

you want to use the properties:

a ln b = ln b^a

and

e^ln a = a.

the rest should be straightfoward.

[itex]\log_b(a^x)=x\log_b(a)[/itex].

Now apply that to your exponent:[itex]2\ln |t|[/itex]. What do you get?

Then note that [itex]f(x)=\ln (x)[/itex] and [itex]g(x)=e^x[/itex] are

Those two rules together will give you the answer.

SWEEET! THANK YOU GUYS. I got my laws of exponents mixed up. :yuck:
