**It helps in calculating all the business taxes which is also a vital part of the company**. Mathematics helps in maintaining this and helps in calculating the actual business profit after deduction of all the taxes & other deductions. Business Maths helps in assessing the financial performance of the business.

Finding and understanding patterns is **crucial to mathematical thinking and problem solving**, and it is easier for students to understand patterns if they know how to organize their information.

Exponential functions are often used to represent real-world applications, such as **bacterial growth/decay, population growth/decline, and compound interest**.

Exponential inequalities are inequalities in which one (or both) sides involve a variable exponent. They are **useful in situations involving repeated multiplication, especially when being compared to a constant value, such as in the case of interest**.

Three of the most common applications of exponential and logarithmic functions have to do with **interest earned on an investment, population growth, and carbon dating**.

Logarithmic functions are important largely **because of their relationship to exponential functions**. Logarithms can be used to solve exponential equations and to explore the properties of exponential functions.

Logarithms are used for **measuring the magnitude of earthquakes**. Logarithms are used for measuring the noise levels in dBs (decibels). They are used to measure the pH level of chemicals. Logarithms are used in radioactivity, mainly to detect the half life of a radioactive element.

Using Logarithmic Functions

Much of the power of logarithms is their usefulness in **solving exponential equations**. Some examples of this include sound (decibel measures), earthquakes (Richter scale), the brightness of stars, and chemistry (pH balance, a measure of acidity and alkalinity).

Using the logarithm of one or more variables **improves the fit of the model by transforming the distribution of the features to a more normally-shaped bell curve**.

Logarithmic scales are useful for **quantifying the relative change of a value as opposed to its absolute difference**. Moreover, because the logarithmic function log(x) grows very slowly for large x, logarithmic scales are used to compress large-scale scientific data.

Validity period of Teachers Eligibility Test qualifying certificate extended from 7 years to **lifetime**. Ministry of Education announced that Government has decided to extend the validity period of Teachers Eligibility Test qualifying certificate from 7 years to lifetime with retrospective effect from 2011.

**The percentage of candidates clearing SET is comparatively higher than NET**. The qualifying candidates for NET can appeal for teaching in any college in the country. The qualified candidates can only apply to particular state-owned colleges/ universities for teaching.

NET vs SET - Syllabus

CISR **NET exam is conducted for the science stream candidates who want to become JRF and assistant professors in colleges/universities.** SET exams are conducted in various streams and comprise several subjects. Each SET exam has its own syllabus.
