Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0none. it will be f(x+y)=f(x)f(y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure it can't be f(x+y)=f(x)+f(y) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0observe tat a^(x+y)=(a^x)(a^y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's f(x+y) = f(x)f(y) example: 2^5 = 2^2 * 2^3 = 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. None of these answers fit.. Wouldn't (f(x))^(y)=f(x^(y)) work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0however f(x)^y=f(xy) will work. I think u got some problems in exponents. Please clear them out instead of trying for the options :) Ask me if u hav any prob:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean that u can urself answer ur doubts if u had ur basics clear:) If u are uncomfortable with exponents ask me freely!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm fine with exponents. It's when it comes to all variables, functions, logarithms, and having to plug things in that I get confused.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If u know (2^3)*(2^1)=2^4 then u automatically know a^x*a^y=a^(x+y) Hint: If u have problems with variables or find difficult to deal with them assign a value to each variable given in the question and the also in the options.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like above u could have assigned x=1 a=2 y=2. etc.. But be careful while dealing with numbers since some numbers cant be used like taking y=1 will prove d correct while its wrong actually. So u must deal with more than 1 numbers.
