Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let's check b., \[f(x)=3(0.5)^x\], that is the same as: \[f(x)=3(\frac{1}{2})^x = \frac{3}{2^x}\] so if we increase the value of x, f(x) will became each time smaller till it reaches near zero as x goes to infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With d. we have: \[f(x)=0.5(9)^{x} = 0.5(\frac{1}{9})^x = \frac{0.5}{9^x}\]
