    Ratio for curve and point-ratio form

    Consider the exponential curve with equation y = 4*.6^6

    a. find the y intercept and ratio for teh curve

    b. find another point on the curve and it to write an equation for the curve in point ratio form

    c. use algebra to show that the original equation and the equation you wrote in part b are equivalent.

    I really got stuck for some reason on point ratio form. Thanks for the help.

    What you have posted is not a curve, but a constant...

    I assume it's still possible to solve right?

    I assume you have copied the function down incorrectly.

    Double check it.

    I'll ask for clarification tomorrow, thanks anyhow.
