# Finding an Exponential Function InExercises 23-26, find the exponential function y = C e k t that passes through the two given points.

To determine

To calculate: Exponential function y=Cekt that is passing through the two points (1,5) and (5,2).

Explanation

Given:

The given figure is:

Exponential function is y=Cekt.

Formula used:

Logarithmic property:

ln(ex)=x

And,

eln(x)=x

Calculation:

Let us consider the given function y=Cekt.

And, the two points are (1,5) and (5,2).

By putting the first point (1,5) in the given function, we get:

y=Cekt5=CekÃ—1Cek=5C=5ek

Next, by putting the second point (5,2) and C=5ek in the given equation, we get:

y=Cekt2=5ekÃ—ekÃ—52=5e5kâˆ’k2=5e4
