Three pairs of logarithmic functions are provided. Graph each pair on one coordinate plane. Then, use the graphs to identify and compare the asymptotes, intercepts, domains, and ranges for each pair, as well as the shape and end behavior of each pair of graphs.

Graph the first pair of functions on the same coordinate plane.

Compare the shapes and end behavior of the graphs.

Identify the two graphs’ asymptotes, intercepts, domains, and ranges.

Graph the second pair of functions together on a new coordinate plane.

Compare the shapes and end behavior of the second pair of graphs.

Identify the two graphs’ asymptotes, intercepts, domains, and ranges.

Graph the third pair of functions together on a new coordinate plane.

Use the graphs to identify the asymptotes, intercepts, domains, and ranges of this third pair of functions.
