    y intercept is what you get when ](t=0\) or \(x=0\) or whatever your variable is

    are you supposed to find an explicit formula for j(x) or are you supposed to find the y intercept as well?

    I just need to know the y intercept because the question is to list the y intercept from least to greatest and I know what the other 2 are im just lost with those 2

    look at the pattern backwards to figure out what you would get if x = 0 2 , 4 , 8 , ?

    yeah so the pattern will be \[16,8,4,2,1,\frac{1}{2},...\]

    yw guess you got some more y intercepts to find right?

    I found the other 2, It was just the graph and an equation.
