# Find the exponential function f(x) = Cbx whose graph is given. To determine

To find: The exponential function which is of the form f(x)=Cbx for the given graph.

Explanation

It is given that the equation of the given graph is of the form f(x)=Cbx .

Here, the graph represents a curve which passes through the points (−1, 3) and (1,43) .

Substitute these points in f(x)=Cbx ,

3=Cb1

3b=C (1).

43=Cb (2).

Substitute equation (1) in equation (2) and obtain the value of b as follows.

43=(3b)b4=9b2b2=49b=±23

Ignore the negative value of b as it cannot take the negative values
