3-95.

Find a possible exponential function in * *form that represents each situation described below.

Has an initial value of

and passes through the point . Since it has an initial value of

, the value of *a*is.

Substitute this into the general equation:Substitute the values

and for and, respectively, then solve for.Passes through the points

and . Create two equations substituting the values of the ordered pairs for

*x*and*y*into the equation.Solve the system of equations for

*a*and*b*.Be sure you use your results for

*a*and*b*to write the equation.
