Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0h of the following functions represents a geometric sequence? Why? a. The function f(x) = x^3 represents a geometric sequence because each term is cubed to make it greater. b. The function f(x) = 4x represents a geometric sequence because each term is the next higher multiple of 4. c. The function f(x) = 4x 4 represents a geometric sequence because each term is 4 more than the previous term. d. The function f(x) = 4^x represents a geometric sequence because each term is 4 times as great as the previous term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An exponental function represents a geometric sequence. An exponential function is an form of: y=b\(^x\) or y=a(b)\(^x\)  why is this so that exponential function represents a geometric sequencet? A geometric sequence is a sequence that follows a pattern of multiplying. In other words you multiply the first term \(a_1\) by common ratio \(\rm r\) to get the the second term \(a_2\). Then you multiply the second term \(a_2\) by common ratio \(\rm r\) to get to the third term \(a_3\). (AND SO ON......) For example: \(3,~~6,~~12,~~24,~~48~...\) You can see that the sequence starts from 3, so \(a_1=3\) And that you multiply times 2, so \(\rm r\)=2. Now! We can represent the same thing exponentially.... how (read this while I am typing)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, exponential function y=a(b)\(^x\) (we will refer to the same example) we can write y=3(2)\(^{x1}\) and it will be equivalent. when x=1 you get: f(1)=3(2)\(^{11}\) = 3(2)\(^{0}\) =3 (and that is \(a_1\)) when x=2 you get: f(2)=3(2)\(^{21}\) = 3(2)\(^{1}\) =3•2=6 (and that is \(a_2\)) when x=3 you get: f(3)=3(3)\(^{31}\) = 3(2)\(^{2}\) =3•4=12 (and that is \(a_3\)) when x=4 you get: f(3)=3(3)\(^{41}\) = 3(2)\(^{3}\) =3•8=24 (and that is \(a_4\)) and so forth

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it is definitely not a. Could it be B or D?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm leaning more towards b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know what an arithmetic sequence is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's a sequence where the difference is constant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, where you add or subtract the same number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And this (arithmetic sequence) is represented by linea function (in a form of y=mx+b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, option B y=4x when x=1, you get 4•1=4 when x=2, you get 4•2=8 when x=3, you get 4•3=12 when x=4, you get 4•4=16 when x=5, you get 4•5=25 so this function (for natural number x values) would represent an arithemtic sequence with the first term 4 and a common difference of 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And any other function in a form of y=mx+b is an arithmetic sequence (roughly speaking, of course)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So tell me now, is B the correct option or not?

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, B is not the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry *C and because its a form of mx+b
