Mya is a performance athlete. She wants to use a function to represent the number of calories that she burns while training, whe
re y represents the total calories burned and a represents her training time in minutes. Mya estimates that the exponential function
y = 45.30.0548.2 is the best fit for the data. Given the following table, what is the actual number of calories that Mya burned when she
trained for 30 minutes? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
I Need help plz
If you marked the one on the left then you are correct. The initial value for this exponential function is 2. That is where x is 0 and y have some value. You could do this mathematically by replacing the x in the equation with a 0 and solving for y. Anything, whether it be a variable or a number, raised to the power of 0 is 1. y = 2 then when you raise 3 to the 0 power because 3^0 = 1 and 2*1 = 2.
