The function of p(x) and g(x) are shown below:
G(x)=0.09x
P(x)=(0.09)^x
Which statement best describes the graph of p(x) and g(x)?
AThe graphs will both have their y intercept equal to 1
BThe graphs will both have their y intercept equal to 0.09
CThe graph of p(x) will eventually exceed the graph of g(x)
DThe graph of g(x) will eventually exceed the graph of p(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you plotted the graphs? If not, i recommend doing that first. Use a graphing calculator or a online plotting utility like wolfram alpha to do so. I think this would be the best way to visually help you understand the questions being asked.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would graph the two equations. Do you have a graphing calculator or have you ever used wolframalpha before?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay that's no problem. First, i'll have you go to http://wolframalpha.com

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's going to bring up a text area similar to how google search bar looks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you want to graph something, you first type in graph followed by the equation(s) you want to graph. So in this case type in, graph 0.09x, (0.09)^x It will graph those two equations for you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. Take a look at the graphs again. Remember the yintercept is where it crosses the yaxes. In this case they do not cross the yaxis at the same place.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good observation. I'll give you one hint. It's either C or D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C? because the p(x) crosses 0 but it isnt a vertical line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But does p(x) exceed, aka become larger than g(x)??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Idk it might because 0 would be larger then if g(x) increases it would go into negitive numbers right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looking at the plot from left to right, look at how it changes. See how g(x) surpasses p(x)? P(x) continues to get smaller and smaller, it continues to get closer and closer to the xaxis. Where as g(x) is a line and continues to grow up and up in the positive direction. Does that make sense/help you out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! Does it make sense why now though? That's the most important thing that i was trying to get you to see by graphing it. I know it took a while but it really is important to understand. :D :D
