Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ben shared his post with 2 friends. Each of those friends shares with 3 more every day, so the number of shares triples every day. Carter shared his post with 10 friends, who each share with only 2 people each day.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the pattern is 2, 6, 18, 54, ..... initally ben has 2 friends f(x) = 2(a)^x a is the base and x is the time.... in days so if things triple, what number do you think will be the base..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for carter, the pattern is 10, 20, 40, 80, ..... so g(x) = 10(b)^x b is the base and x is the time in days so what do you think the base is for this problem if its doubling..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that would be my answer... when x = 0 which is the initial time, ben has 2 friends f(0) = 2*(3)^0 = 2
