Determine whether each statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning. I’m using a photocopier to reduce an image over and over by 50%,so the exponential function \(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}^{{x}}\) models the new image size, where x is the number of reductions.

The statement make sense and using a photocopier the exponential function that models the new image size is a decreasing function. Therefore it is responsible for reducing the size of the image.
