# How do you state two equations for an exponential function that passes through (0,12) and shows growth?

Jul 16, 2016

I tried using $e$ and $10$ as the traditional and most used exponentials.

#### Explanation:

I would use the two traditional exponentials as:

$y = 12 \cdot {e}^{1 \cdot x}$
graph{12e^x [-52, 52.02, -26, 26]}
and:

$y = 12 \cdot {10}^{1 \cdot x}$
graph{12*10^x [-58.5, 58.5, -29.25, 29.25]}

In both case when $x = 0$ the exponentials become equal to $1$ and give you $y = 12$; also the positive numerical exponent (in this case $1$) multiplies $x$ and gives you a growing tendency.
