The function f(x) = 245(4)^x represents the growth of a fruit fly population every year in the orange grove. Stacey wants to manipulate the formula to an equivalent form that calculates every month, not every year. Which function is correct for Stacey's purposes?

    well.. there are 12 months in 1 year so for any value, one twelth of that will be what every month averages to \(\bf f(x)=245(4)^x\impliedby yearly \\ \quad \\ f(x)=\cfrac{245(4)^x}{12}\impliedby monthly\)

    alright these are the answer choices f(x) = 45(4)^x f(x) = 45(4^12)^x/12 f(x) = 2752(4)x f(x) = 245(4 ^1/2)^12x

    Please confirm that choice D should be written as: \[\large 245(4^{\frac{1}{12}})^{12x}\]
