## Intermediate Algebra: Connecting Concepts through Application

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ The graph of $y=\log_b x$ goes up (from leftt to right) when the base, $b,$ is greater than $1.$ The graph goes down when the base is between $0$ to $1.$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Since the given logarithmic graph in Exercise $6 ,$ goes down (from left to right), then the base is $\text{ less than 1 .}$
