**Write an exponential function**

EXAMPLE 1 Write an exponential function Write an exponential function y = ab whose graph passes through (1, 12) and (3, 108). x SOLUTION STEP 1 Substitute the coordinates of the two given points into y = ab . x 12 = ab 1 Substitute 12 for y and 1 for x. 108 = ab 3 Substitute 108 for y and 3 for x. STEP 2 Solve for a in the first equation to obtain a = , and substitute this expression for a in the second equation. 12 b

EXAMPLE 2 Find an exponential model A store sells motor scooters. The table shows the number y of scooters sold during the xth year that the store has been open. Scooters • Draw a scatter plot of the data pairs (x, ln y). Is an exponential model a good fit for the original data pairs (x, y)? • Find an exponential model for the original data.

**Find an exponential model**

EXAMPLE 2 Find an exponential model SOLUTION STEP 1 Use a calculator to create a table of data pairs (x, ln y). x 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ln y 2.48 2.77 3.22 3.58 3.91 4.29 4.56 STEP 2 Plot the new points as shown. The points lie close to a line, so an exponential model should be a good fit for the original data.

**Find an exponential model**

EXAMPLE 2 Find an exponential model STEP 3 Find an exponential model y = ab by choosing two points on the line, such as (1, 2.48) and (7, 4.56). Use these points to write an equation of the line. Then solve for y. x ln y – 2.48 = 0.35(x – 1) Equation of line ln y = 0.35x Simplify. y = e 0.35x Exponentiate each side using base e. y = e (e ) 2.13 0.35 x Use properties of exponents. y = 8.41(1.42) x Exponential model

**Use exponential regression**

EXAMPLE 3 Use exponential regression Use a graphing calculator to find an exponential model for the data in Example 2. Predict the number of scooters sold in the eighth year. Scooters SOLUTION Enter the original data into a graphing calculator and perform an exponential regression. The model is y = 8.46(1.42) . x Substituting x = 8 (for year 8) into the model gives y = 8.46(1.42) scooters sold. 8
