Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is a geometric sequence with r=3 and \(a_0\)=2. Or same way with an exponential function, you know the initial value of 2, and the base of the exponential function is 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: from your data, we have: \[\Large \begin{gathered} N = 2 \times {3^0} = 2 \to day:0 \hfill \\ N = 2 \times {3^1} = 6 \to day:1 \hfill \\ N = 2 \times {3^2} = 18 \to day:2 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whats the value of x in Y=a(b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the x doesn't have a particular value in this case (it is a function, like any other, all you need to do is to fill in for a and b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you plugged in for a and b (into the y=a(b)\(^x\) ) (without multiplying anything, rather, just when you plugged) what did you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, y=2(3)\(^x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can't multiply 2 and 3 together, because 3 is raised to exponent of x, and 2 is not. you get a wrong result, because 2(3)\(^x\) \(\ne\) 6\(^x\) for the following reason 2(3 • 3) \(\square \) 6 • 6 2(3 • 3 • 3) \(\square \) 6 • 6 • 6 2(3 • 3 • 3 • 3) \(\square \) 6 • 6 • 6 • 6 etc....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, we have the same exact thing, and a same exact function y=a(b)\(^x\) to fill out, EXCEPT that the numbers are bit different.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2btw, jst giving you a tip, that you can write an exponent using a caret, the ^ key. (obtained by Shift+6) y=10(2)^x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2^x indicates that x is the exponent. 9so that you don't have to write that x is the exponent every time verbally.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok thanks, 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.

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh, so now you have to graph the function from question 1, and the function 2.... right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, so your 1st function is y=2(3)^x and your second function is y=10(2)^x

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I will recommend to use x=0 x=1 x=2 for the first and for the second function (use www.desmos.com/calculator because otherwise, you will have a hard time drawing it).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets name your 1st function f(x), and second function g(x) (for our convience, for now)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2f(x)=2(3)\(^x\) g(x)=10(2)\(^x\) you will need to tell me f(0), f(1), f(2) AND g(0), g(1), g(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im confused, i really didn't understand the graphing at all

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you just need to label a couple of points (at least 3) on the first function, graph them, and connect them with a curve to get (an approximate) graph of the function. Then, do the same thing for the second function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I am just advising you to use the points with xcoordinates of 0,1, and 2)
