    ok... for the starting price x = 0 so for stock A what is the starting price, substitute x = 0 Stock B read the table and find the value of f(x) when x = 0 Stock C it says that the starting price is $30... identify the middle value of the 3 thats step 1

    great so the function is \[f(x) =25\times(1.04)^x\] does that make sense

    Yes, I understand this part now! Yet, I'm not sure how I would word it to justify that answer either..

    of... for the starting price use x = 0... in for each stock... that is the initial value... so say something like, find the value when x = 0... then give the 3 values as for the rate of increase... the 1st model is 1.08 so the rate of increase is 8% and then for B the price is declining you are told C = 4% so talk about those things

    use this site to graph it it will do it easily.... just enter it as y = 25*(1.04)^x https://www.desmos.com/calculator

    well the graph is only 1st quadrant... show the initial price... the y- intercept... and probably aboter 10 to 15 days the value may get a little silly
