Chapter 1.5, Problem 21E

To determine

**To find:** The exponential function which is of the form

Expert Solution

The equation of the graph is

It is given that the equation of the given graph is of the form

Here, the graph represents a curve which passes through the points (3, 24) and (1, 6).

Substitute these points in

Divide the equation (1) by equation (2) and obtain the value of *b* as follows.

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

Thus, the value of *b* = 2.

Substitute
*C*.

Therefore, the value of *C* = 3.

Substitute the value of b and C in

Therefore, equation of the exponential function which passes through the points (3,24) and (1,6) is
