Unformatted text preview: 3 5 x + 750 = 1000 5 x = 250 x = 50 . 4. Find C and a such that the function f ( x ) = Ca x satises the given conditions. f (0) = 7 and for each unit increase in x , the output is multiplied by 3.4. Solutions. We build this problem up from x = 0. So we begin by noting that f (0) = 7, so we see that f (0) = Ca = C = 7 . So we see that C = 7. Now we have that f (1) = f (0) 3 . 4, which follows as f (1) = f (0) 3 . 4 = 7 3 . 4 Now we compute f (2) and we nd that f (2) = f (1) 3 . 4 = 7 3 . 4 3 . 4 = 7(3 . 4) 2 Before we jump to a conclusion here, we should try one more case. And we see that f (3) = f (2) 3 . 4 = 7(3 . 4) 2 3 . 4 = 7(3 . 4) 3 Thus we see that f ( x ) = 7(3 . 4) x ....
