Student Amber Ben Carter
Description Amber shared her photo with 3 people. They continued to share it, so the number of shares increases every day as shown by the function. Ben shared his post with 2 friends. Each of those friends shares with 3 more every day, so the number of shares triples every day. Carter shared his post with 10 friends, who each share with only 2 people each day.
Social Media Post Shares f(x) = 3(4)x
Day Number of Shares

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11) Using the functions for each student, predict how many shares each student's post will have received on Day 3 and then on Day 10. Justify your answers. 2)Graph each function using at least 3 points for each line. All graphs should be placed together on the same coordinate plane, so be sure to label each line. You may graph your equation by hand on a piece of paper and scan your work or you may use graphing technology

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it asking for how many shares each student's post will have received on Day 3 and then on Day 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Yes, we have 3 students : Amber, Ben, Carter Amber's shares function is given by \[f(x) = 3*(4)^x\] simply plugin \(x=3\) to find the number of shares on day \(3\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so all you have to do is plugin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Right, you do see that function notation is so simple. All you have to do is plug because, when you plugin the day number, "x", the function f(x) spits out the shares on that day.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Amber=f(x)=3∗(4)x Ben=f(x)=2∗(4)x Carter=f(x)=10∗(4)x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Not quite, Ben's shares are tripling each day, so the function should be \[f(x) = 2*(3)^x\] yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4`Carter shared his post with 10 friends, who each share with only 2 people each day.` each are sharing with 2 people each day, that means the number of shares are doubling each day, so the function for carter's shares will be \[f(x) = 10*(2)^x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4plugin x=3, 10 in each of these functions to find the number of shares on 3rd and 10th day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it will be f(x)=10∗(2)x??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4for Carter, it is f(x) = 10*(2)^x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Amber=f(x)=3∗(4)^x Ben=f(x)=2∗(3)x Carter=f(x)=10∗(2)^x plugin x=3 and find the number of shares on 3rd day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Yes, so on day 3, Amber's photo will be shared to 192 people.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Yes! why do you think Amber has more shares on day 10 ? Notice that Amber has started with just 3 shares and Carter started with 10 shares. Still Carter's shares are very low compared to Amber on day 10. why ?

chrisGA

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1becuase as the days went on People started to share amber post more than everyone else

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Kindof, but a more correct answer would be : Amber's shares are incresing by 4 times each day where as Carter's shares are only increasing by 2 times each day. so Amber's shares are expected to be more on day 10 compared to Carter's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f Amber decides to mail copies of her photo to the 45 residents of her grandmother's assisted living facility, the new function representing her photo shares is f(x) = 3(4)x + 45. How does this graph compare with the original graph of Amber's photo share?
