Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and if you are curious how to find the equation for any simple power function, simply use logarithms. Ask yourself, to what power do I have to raise x to get y? In logarithmic form this question would be \[\log_{x} y = power\] In your case it would be \[\log_{2}32 = 5\] hence you know that to get y you raise x to the 5th power, so the function will be \[f(x) = x ^{5}\] which you can also write as \[y = x ^{5}\] NOTE that this method ONLY works for SIMPLE power functions
