Answers to the question of the integral of 1 over x are all based on an implicit assumption that the upper and lower limits of the integral are both positive real numbers. If we allow more generality, we find an interesting Paradox. For instance, suppose the limits on the integral are from -A to +A where A is a real, positive number.

In mathematics, the abbreviation "exp" stands for the word exponent. An exponent is a number placed after another number to indicate the power to which the former number is to be raised. The expression 5 exp 2, for example, means 5 raised to the second power or 5 x 5.

## Are exponential functions always positive?Are exponential functions always positive?

Because we only work with positive bases, bx is always positive. The values of f(x) , therefore, are either always positive or always negative, depending on the sign of a . Exponential functions live entirely on one side or the other of the x-axis.
