The balance in two separate bank accounts grows each month at different rates. The growth rates for both accounts are represented by the functions f(x) = 2x and g(x) = 4x + 12. In what month is the f(x) balance greater than the g(x) balance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Here, it would be an inequality of 2x > 4x +12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2solving it would look something like this: 2x > 4x + 12 2x > 12 x < 6 except that doesn't seem right...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If y was the growth rate and both accounts started at the same amount, then the answer should be 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe it is not \[f(x)=2x\] could it be \[f(x)=2^x\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because for positive numbers \(2x\) is always less than \(4x+12\)
