Question

EXPONENTIAL & LOGORITHMIC FUNCTION

Given a table of data

 x y 0 2.3 4 3.6 8 5.7 12 9.1 16 14 20 22

a. Graph the points and from visual inspection, select the model that would best fit the data. Choose from

y = mx + b (linear)                                           y = abx (exponential)

y = a + b ln x (logorithmic)                            y =         c               (logistic)
1 + ae-bx

b. Use a graphing utility to find a function that fits the data. (show work)
