# Transforming exponential functions to logarithmic

D(t) = 82.5 · 0.9982t with D the number of inhabitants in millions and t the time in years. t= 0 = the year 2008

The above mentioned equation describing the exponential growth of the number of inhabitants can be rewritten to a form t= A·log (D) + B. Rewrite this formula and determine coefficients A and B.

I have been struggling on finding much information online on how to solve this and feel very lost.

Could someone explain to me how to transform this from beginning to end?

Thank you so much!

Note this is exponential DECAY, since 0.9982 < 1.
