Answer:

Please see below.

Explanation:

Excel has an exponential function and a natural log function.

The function is =EXP(value) and it gives the result of #e^(value)# (this is called syntax). For example, to find the value of #e#, we can write =EXP(1). Further if we put a number #x# in A1 and in A2 we put the formula =EXP(A1^2-1), this gives us #e^(x^2-1)#.

In other words, whatever is in the exponent goes in the parentheses.

Similarly the syntax for natural log in Excel is =LN(value).

In other words if we put a number #x# in A1 and in A2 we put the formula =LN(A1^2-1), this gives us #ln(x^2-1)#.
