# How do you solve the following exponential growth function for y when x=3 given y=12^x?

Nov 30, 2016

$y = 1728$

#### Explanation:

To complete this problem you need to substitute $3$ for $x$ and do the mathematics knowing what exponents mean:

$y = {12}^{3}$

$y = 12 \cdot 12 \cdot 12$

$y = 144 \cdot 12$

$y = 1728$
