The function is linear if there is a common difference between the y-values for a constant increase in the z-values while the function is exponential if there is a common ratio between the y-values for a constant increase in the z-values.
Since there is a common ratio of 7 between the y-values for « constant increase of 1 in the x-values, then the function is exponential.
Use the exponential model y=abx
where a is the initial value (where x= 0) and & is the common ratio. Substitute a = 8 and b= 7 so: y=8(7)x
or
f(x)=8(7)x

The population of California was 29.76 million in 1990 and 33.87 million in 2000. Assume that the population grows exponentially.
(a) Find a function that models the population t years after 1990.
(b) Find the time required for the population to double.
(c) Use the function from part (a) to predict the population of California in the year 2010. Look up California’s actual population in 2010, and compare.

How do you write y=3x-8 in standard form?

logarithmic derivative of x e ( x 2 + cos x )
I'm having a hard time taking the derivative of
f ( x ) = x e ( x 2 + c o s x ) .
I'm aware that I have to take the logarithm of both sides.
ln ( y ) = ln ( x e ( x 2 + cos x ) ) = ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x )
Which I tried to untie, so lets start: First I use the product rule:
1 y y = 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x )
Next the power rule:
1 y y = 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + c o s x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1
Then I bring the y to the right:
y = y ( 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1 2 x sin x )
And exchange y with the term:
y = x e ( x 2 + cos x ) ( 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1 2 x sin x )
This is extremely overwhelming for me and I have absolutely no clue if this is right, I looked in to the result of wolfram and It doesn't seem to be correct. Any help would be appreciated.

logarithms equations,
Hello I have following problem: solve equation log ( x 5 ) 2 + log ( x + 6 ) 2 = 2and I rewrited this equation as
2 log ( x 5 ) + 2 log ( x + 6 ) = log 100 2 ( log ( x 5 ) ( x + 6 ) ) = log 100 log x 2 + x 30 = log 10 x 2 + x 40 = 0
and I solved this equation, but I obtained only two solutions and there should be four, so I wonder if it is necessary to create log ( x 5 ) 2 ( x + 6 ) 2 = log 100 or is a simplier way.
