Mathematics byeeee:

Which of the following exponential functions goes through the points (1, 12) and (2, 36)? f(x) = 4(3)−x f(x) = 3(4)−x f(x) = 3(4)x f(x) = 4(3)x

1 year ago dude:

Right off the bat, lets look at the points. Do they go up or down?

1 year ago byeeee:

up

1 year ago dude:

So we can eliminate $$f(x) = 4(3)^{−x}$$ and $$f(x) = 3(4)^{−x}$$

1 year ago byeeee:

yeah

1 year ago dude:

To check which one is right we can substitute each point into the equations (If you dont have access to a graphing calculator) Ex. (To check for answer choice D) $$f(x)=4(3)^x=>~~12=4(3)^1$$ and $$36=4(3)^2$$ If you do it should look something like this https://www.desmos.com/calculator/xvcyxstsha
