HELP!!! WILL GIVE MEDAL!! The function f(x) = 4(4)x represents the growth of a fly population every year in a remote swamp. Jackie wants to manipulate the formula to an equivalent form that calculates three times a year, not just once a year. Which function is correct for Jackie's purpose, and what is the new growth rate? f(x) = 4(4)x; growth rate 400% f(x) = 4(4)3x, growth rate 4% f(x) = 4(1.59)3x; growth rate 59% f(x) = 4(1.59)x; growth rate 4%

    Well, looking at f(x)=4(4)x , it would make sense to represent a growth 3 times per year with f(x)=4(4)3x because the exponent x is going to be 3 times grater, since you triple the yearly growth.
