If Joe wanted to create a function that modeled an exponential function with base of 8 and what exponents were needed to reach specific values, how would he set up his function? f(x) = x8 f(x) = log8x f(x) = logx8 f(x) = 8x

    f(x) = 8x X can be his unknown and 8 is his base for an exponential function! ^.^

    f(x)=8x is just a straight line, not an exponential function

    That is exactly right. B is a logarithmic function with a base of 8. The inverse of this is an exponential function

    I think the problem here is that you haven't written your functions out correctly. Is this D? \[y=8^{x}\]

    f(x) = 8x

    If it's suppose to look like this then it's correct \[f(x) = 8^{x}\]
