# can anyone solve this: The exponential function f(x) = 9204e^0.022x models the number of hits logged by a website each year where x is the years after 2000. Project the number of hits that will be logged by the website in 2020.

f(20) = 9204 * e^(.022*20)f(20) = 14,291 hitsNote: 20 is the number of years after the year 2000 to get to 2020

so fuctions mean if f(x)=x+2 then if you put in 3 for x then f(3)=3+2=5 so if x=years after 2000 in 2020 then 2020-2000=20 so x=20 subsitute f(20)=9204e^0.022(20) e could be: 1. common base of logarithms (memorised to 15 decmals) 2.718281828459045 2. a computer notation exg if you have 3e11 that means 3 times 10^11 if it is 1 9240 times (2.718281828459045^(0.022 times 20))=( simplify exponent first) 9240 times (2.718281828459045^0.44)=9204 times 1.5527072185113=14291.1 or rounded to 14291 if it is 2 9204 times 10^(0.022 times 20)=9204 times 10^(0.44)=9204 times 254.491 rounded to 254 so the answer dependes on what e represents, if e is: 1. common base of logarithms (memorised to 15 decmals) 2.718281828459045, then answer is 14291 2. a computer notation exg if you have 3e11 that means 3 times 10^11 =254
