    Ben 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.

    Ben shared his post with 2 friends. Each of those friends shares with 3 more every day, so the number of shares triples every day.

    so 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..?

    for 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..?

    that would be my answer... when x = 0 which is the initial time, ben has 2 friends f(0) = 2*(3)^0 = 2
