Problem:
Using the enclosed Java applet, explore graphically the effect of changing the coefficients a, b, c, and d in the logarithmic function

f(x) = a ln(b (x - c)) + d


Visualization:

f(x) = a ln(b (x - c)) + d

This exploration is about recognizing what happens to the graph of the logarithmic function when you change one or more of the coefficients a, b, c, and d. We start with the blue graph which is the graph of the function f(x) = ln(x). You can manipulate this graph by modifying the coefficients in the ways which are listed in the boxes beneath the graph.
