Step 1 help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(a) Consider the given two points on the line as (1,2) and (5,50). Note that, the equation of line passing through two points (x,,y) and (x,,y) is given by Hence, the calculate the equation of line from two points (1, 3) and (3, -3) as follows ( (x, 1;) = (1,2) (x,.y2)(5,50) y-2 50 2 x-1 5 1 -1 y-2 48 4 48 y-2 4 (x-1) y 12x-10 fullscreen
Step 2 help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(b) Consider the exponential function as y = ab*. Since the function passing through two points (1,2) and (5,50), the constant value can be obtained as follows ((x,y)(1.2) 1) 50 ab ((x, y)= (5,50)...(2) 2 ab 50 2b4 b 25 b 1.057 2 Substitute b 1.057 in the equation 2 ab and solve for a a(1.057) 2 2 1.892 = 1057 y =(1.892)(1.057) Thus the exponential function is where a 1.892 and b=1.057 fullscreen
