Each day that goes by he gets 4 times as much money as the last one. So that looks like an exponential function, rigth?
What exponential function gives you f(0) = 1, f(1) = 4, f(2) = 16?
It has to have an X in it to represent the day number
if x=1, what's 2^x? What about if x=2?
if x=1then2^x is 2, if x=2 then 2^x = 4
ok, that doesn't seem right then, right? We wanted when x=1, it's 1, and when x=2, it's 4
so try again, can you think of a function that goes up by a factor of 4 each time?
4? You need an X for it to be a function
