Techniques in Math

When you see a curve that looks like some exponential curve and you don’t know the exponent, then take logarithm on both sides and plot to find the slope of the straight line as your exponent.

The logarithm of a number by two different base values differs by a constant factor.

If we want to find the extremum of a function with constraints, Lagrange Multipliers will be useful. These help us to incorporate constraints and function into another function so that we don’t need to think about constraints anymore and just finding the extremum of this new function will suffice.
