Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, the yintercept is (0,5) which eliminates b,c choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to decide among a or d you can put x=1, and see what you get as y and the point will be of the form, (1,b) and its not c.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea the graph they had on wolf was C but if u turn it its A and its (1,5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you put x=1, u get y= 5 (2)^1 = 10 so the point is (1,10) which rules out d, if you observe....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since it's all positive numbers, the line will be going up as you go to the right, so you can immediately rule out any graphs where the line goes down as you go the right. Which leaves only a and c. Then you can check values as hartnn showed.
