The equation, y = 10(1.0605)x, represents the winning prize money, in thousands, for first place in the Indianapolis 500 auto race. x represents the number of years after 1911, the first year.
What is the value for 1911 (x = 0)? This is the prize money, in thousands. For instance, if you got 23, this represents $23,000.
A. $10,605
B. $10,000
C. $0
Wouldnt the correct answer be A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so lets look at it going backward: \[5^3 = 125\] \[5^2 = 25 = \frac{125}{5}\] \[5^1 = 5 = \frac{25}{5}\] \[5^0 =\ ? = \frac{5}{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And this is the case for any number: \[b^0 = \frac{b}{b} = 1, \forall b \ne 0\]
