Which function could be a stretch of the exponential decay function shown on the graph?

f(x) = 2(1/6)^x

Which exponential function is represented by the table?

f(x) = 0.8(2x)

Which value of a in the exponential function below would cause the function to stretch?

f(x) = a(1/3)^x

1.5

Which exponential function is represented by the table? (It’s different from the earlier)

f(x) = 0.5(0.2x)

Which is a stretch of an exponential decay function?

f(x) = 5/4 (4/5)^x

Consider the exponential function f(x) = 1/5 (15x). What is the value of the growth factor of the function?

15

Which exponential function is represented by the graph? (Curving up from left to right, crosses through point (0,3) and (1,6))

f(x) = 3(2x)

What is the initial value of the exponential function represented by the table?
X Y
-2 1/8
-1 1/4
0 1/2

1/2

What is the initial value of the exponential function shown on the graph? (Curve goes down from left to right, crosses through (0,4))

4

Which exponential function is represented by the table?
X Y
-2 0.2
-1 0.4
0 0.8

NOT f(x) = 0.8(0.8x) (According to Edgenuity)

Which exponential function has an initial value of 2?

NOT C. f(x) = 3(2x) OR D. (THE TABLE)

What is the decay factor of the exponential function represented by the table?
X Y
-1 18
0 6
1 2

NOT 2/3

Which graph represents a function with a growth factor of 5?

NOT D. (Graph that curves up from left to right, intersecting at point (0,0.6))

Consider the exponential function f(x) = 3(1/3)^x and its graph.

Which statements are true for this function and graph? Check all that apply.

The initial value of the function is 1/3.
The growth value of the function is 1/3.
The function shows exponential decay.
The function is a stretch of the function f(x) =1/3^x.
The function is a shrink of the function f(x) = 3x.
One point on the graph is (3, 0).

I really have no idea. People on Brainly suck at providing good help. They gave me 2 answers, so i don’t know if I need more or if they were just wrong. The function shows exponential decay. The function is a stretch of the function f(x) = 1/3 That’s all they gave me and it was wrong. Take this with a grain of salt.

Which exponential function is represented by the values in the table?

NOT B. f(x) = 4(4)x
