Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an exponential equation follows the form y = ae^x + b, where and b are some constants. To use this, we plug in known values, which will give us a system of equations. (0,6): 6 = ae^0 + b = a + b (2,9): 9 = ae^2 + b we can subtract the first one from the second to get: 3 = ae^2  a = a(e^2  1), or a = 3/(e^2  1) and we can then plug this value of a into either equation we got first to get b. I'll plug it into the first one: 6 = a + b = (3/(e^2  1)) + b, or b = 6  (3/(e^2  1)). Then put the values of a and b into the general form of an exponential equation y = (3/(e^2  1))e^x + (6  3/(e^2  1)). Plug the two initial points given to make sure the equation is correct
