Suppose the amount of money in a bank account with an initial balance of $25,000 earns 1.5 percent interest per year. If the exponential function, y=A*B^X , is used to model this situation, which value would represent B in the function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Kash_TheSmartGuy it's kind of hard not to give a direct answer to that question. There's nothing to work out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what are you talking about? The question is asking him to pick out a number for use in a formula. And I gave a perfectly good explanation of how to do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so first question: Which exponential function is best represented by this table? x f(x) 0 2 1 6 2 18 3 54 answers: f(x)=3(2)^x f(x)=2(3)^x f(x)=3(1/2)^x f(x)=2(1/3)^x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the terms are the f(x) values. It's a sequence of numbers. 2, 6, 18, 54. 2 is the first term, 6 is the second term and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WE know a=2, so you just have to calculate r to get your function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = ar^x is a general formula for an exponential function. They're asking you to find a and r for the specific points in your table. You don't really need to worry about the xvalues. Only look at the f(x) part of the table. For exponential functions, a = the first number on the f(x) side. r = (2nd #)/(1st #) = (3rd #)/(2nd #) = (4th #)/(3rd #) → it's the same no matter which two consecutive numbers you use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they're just constants. placeholders. you can use any two letters

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need a letter to hold the place of the constant until you find what it is. It's kind of like the how a  quadratic function is y=ax²+bx+c  a linear function is y = mx+b.  Exponential functions are y = ar^x The constants just represent part of the function
