please help!!Three Algebra 1 students are comparing how fast their social media posts have spread. Their results are shown in the following table. Student Amber Ben Carter Description Amber shared her photo with 3 people. They continued to share it, so the number of shares increases every day as shown by the function. Ben shared his post with 2 friends. Each of those friends shares with 3 more every day, so the number of shares triples every day. Carter shared his post with 10 friends, who each share with only 2 people each day. Social Media Post Shares f(x) = 3(4)x Day Number of Shares 0 2 1 6 2 18 Carter shared his post with 10 friends, who each share with only 2 people each day. Write an exponential function to represent the spread of Ben's social media post. Write an exponential function to represent the spread of Carter's social media post.

Since the question is asking for Ben's specific function, we only need to pay attention to the information given for him: Ben shared his post with 2 friends, who each share with 3 more friends every day. So, the function will be: f(x) = 2(3^x) (with the x as an exponent). The first number is 2, because that's the initial number of friends Ben shares his posts with. Since this number triples every day, 2 will be multiplied times 3. Since the sharing with 3 friends each repeats every day, the exponent (x) will be the number of days that this occurs.
