Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2given: g(x) = 3x9 f(x) = 5x1 and we need to solve g(x)  f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we plug these functions into g(x)f(x) 3x9(5x1) now distribute the negative on the right hand side of the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... that's good 3x95x+1 now we combine like terms.. we can also rearrange this equation to make it easier to solve so instead of 3x95x+1 we can rewrite it as 3x5x9+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ahhhhhhhh! ok no problem... just rewrite what f(x) and g(x) was supposed to be

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok was g(x) = 3^x9 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x)=5x1 g(x)=3^x9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok we do the same process again g(x) f(x) 3^x9(5x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2actually we have already done the distribution of the negative, 3^x95x+1 now combine like terms for 9+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since we can't combine any more terms, that's the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given the parent functions f(x) = log10 x and g(x) = 5x − 2, what is f(x) • g(x)? f(x) • g(x) = log10 x5x − 2 f(x) • g(x) = log10 (5x − 2)x f(x) • g(x) = 5x log10 x + 2 log10 x f(x) • g(x) = 2 log10 x − 5x log10 x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f(x)=\log_{10} x \] g(x)=5x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0firt answer is log10 x^52 second is log10(5x2)^x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we are using multiplication \[f(x) \cdot g(x) \] once again we place our f(x) function and g(x) into the formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\log_{10}x[5x2] \rightarrow \log_{10}x[5x]\log_{10}x[2]\] based on your choices, it doesn't require you to calculate the log portion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its either c or d?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldnt it be d because its  and not +?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This question right? Given the parent functions f(x) = log10 x and g(x) = 5x − 2, what is f(x) • g(x)? f(x) • g(x) = log10 x5x − 2 f(x) • g(x) = log10 (5x − 2)x f(x) • g(x) = 5x log10 x + 2 log10 x f(x) • g(x) = 2 log10 x − 5x log10 x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large f(x) = \log_{10}(x)\] \[\Large g(x) = 5x2\] You will distribute the "log(x)" portion through like so \[\Large f(x) \cdot g(x) = \log_{10}(x)\cdot(5x2)\] \[\Large f(x) \cdot g(x) = \log_{10}(x)\cdot 5x + \log_{10}(x)\cdot(2)\] \[\Large f(x) \cdot g(x) = 5x\log_{10}(x)2\log_{10}(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0could it be c because when you multiply its equivalent to adding with exponets or something like that lol?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I second on that typo comment. Even I was in ??????????? land when I found out that there was a sign switch on C and D. It's like we have the answer, but the choices they gave messed up on the signs.
