A video game sets the points needed to reach the next level based on the function g(x) = 10(2)x − 1, where x is the current level. The hardest setting promises to multiply the points needed in each level according to the function h(x) = 2x. How many points will a player need on the hardest setting of level 5?
10 points
160 points
1600 points
16000 points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry I don't understand your formula: g(x) = 10(2)x − 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is your formula like this: \[\Large g\left( x \right) = 10 \times {2^{x  1}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the points needed to reach the fifth level are: \[\Large g\left( 5 \right) = 10 \times {2^{5  1}} = 10 \times {2^4} = 10 \times 16 = ...\] the hardest setting multiply those points by \[\Large h\left( 5 \right) = 2 \times 5 = 10\] so the requested poiints are: \[\Large g\left( 5 \right) \times h\left( 5 \right) = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: \[\Large g\left( 5 \right) \times h\left( 5 \right) = 160 \times 10 = ...?\]
