**Unformatted text preview: **And through investigation we recognize that 81 = 3 4 . Therefore, we get (b) We first simplify the denominator and then combine the numerator via the base of the exponents, 2. Therefore, we get Notice that, no matter what b is (except 1), the graph of y = b x has a y-intercept of 1. Also, if 0 < b < 1, the function is decreasing. If b > 1, then the function is increasing. Solve the following equation for x . This is the given equation. Factor. Simplify. Since 5 x and 6 – 3 x are being multiplied , set each factor equal to zero. 5 x " x = 2 5 x ! 0....
