Find the equation for an exponential that passes through the following points:

(-1, 35/12) and (2, 126/25)

Having a lot of trouble on this, thanks for the help :)

Re: Find the equation for an exponential that passes through the following points:

What is the form you are to use, i.e., what are the two parameters? Is it:

?

Set up a system of equations using:

and solve

Re: Find the equation for an exponential that passes through the following points:

Okay, you have two parameters and two given points. We are told:

Now using , what is your system of equations?

I hope this helps:

Using a similar process for the second point allows you to solve for b, and consequently for a.
