The function f(x) = 800(1.09)3x shows the growth due to interest that Jim earns on an investment.
The steps to calculate an equivalent function are shown below:
[Step 1] f(x) = 800(1.09)3x
[Step 2] f(x) = 800(1.093)x
[Step 3] f(x) = 800(1.09 ⋅ 3)x
[Step 4] f(x) = 800(3.27)x
Which of the following is the first incorrect step?
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
