Yes I have been "dead" for a while, I am back! I was learning about logarithms and on the test it threw this equation at me.

\(y=-\ln x +2\)

What on earth is LN? Or is it 1n? Why didn't my book tell me about this?

 

 

On a side note, what is the proper way to pronounce logarithm?

ln is the 'natural logarithm'     based on   e          LOG is the base 10 logarithm.

Not sure what you are asking, but:

-y = -ln x   + 2

2+y = ln x

e^(2+y) = e^(ln x)

e^(2+y) = x

I've never heard it pronounced any other way than   log     rhymes with  'bog'   'dog'   'hog'  'cog'  'fog'    etc......

This is not an equation.....it's a graph of the natural log function reflected about the x axis and shifted up 2 units

 

Here's a graph of the parent function  and this one  :
