PLZ HELP?!?!?!?!(WILL MEDAL+FAN) The functions p(x) and g(x) are shown below: g(x) = 0.09x p(x) = (0.09)x Which statement best describes the graph of p(x) and g(x)? A. The graphs will both have their y-intercept equal to 1. B. The graphs will both have their y-intercept equal to 0.09. C. The graph of p(x) will eventually exceed the graph of g(x). D.The graph of g(x) will eventually exceed the graph of p(x).

    Did you mean this?\[g(x)=0.09x\\ p(x)=0.09^x\]

    it says g(x) = 0.09x p(x) = (0.09)x

    ab is the same as a(b) I'm kind of thinking you meant what @amilapsn wrote above

    \[\\ p(x)=0.09^x \text{ this is the same as } \\ p(x)=(0.09)^x \\ \text{ if you have happen to have ( )} \\ \text{ in your problem and you don't know what they mean }\] so did @amilapsn interpret your problem correctly

    yes, i agree it can be written p(x)=0.09^x

    ok so great we are in agreement (0.09)x is not the same as (0.09)^x correct?

    anyways do you know how to graph the line and the exponential function ?

    A. The graphs will both have their y-intercept equal to 1. can we answer this question then? to find the y-intercept set x=0 and find y. \[\\ \text{ for } g \text{ we have } y=0.09(0)=? \\ \text{ for } p \text{ we have } y=0.09^0=?\] are the y-intercepts the same?

    0.09 to the 0 power is 1

    they are not both the same so choice A is definitely not the answer let's look at choice B

    B. The graphs will both have their y-intercept equal to 0.09. we know this is false too because we already found the y-intercepts previously

    so the next thing to do is see which function eventually exceeds the other

    and it would be kinda helpful to graph/draw the functions

    isn't g(x)=0.09x which means it is linear
