Answer 128119 by jim_thompson5910(28546)   on 2008-12-14 16:54:55 (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!

Looking at we can see that the first term is and the last term is where the coefficients are 3 and 16 respectively.

Now multiply the first coefficient 3 and the last coefficient 16 to get 48. Now what two numbers multiply to 48 and add to the middle coefficient 26? Let's list all of the factors of 48:

Factors of 48:
1,2,3,4,6,8,12,16,24,48

-1,-2,-3,-4,-6,-8,-12,-16,-24,-48 ...List the negative factors as well. This will allow us to find all possible combinations

These factors pair up and multiply to 48
1*48
2*24
3*16
4*12
6*8
(-1)*(-48)
(-2)*(-24)
(-3)*(-16)
(-4)*(-12)
(-6)*(-8)

note: remember two negative numbers multiplied together make a positive number

Now which of these pairs add to 26? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to 26

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1481+48=49
2242+24=26
3163+16=19
4124+12=16
686+8=14
-1-48-1+(-48)=-49
-2-24-2+(-24)=-26
-3-16-3+(-16)=-19
-4-12-4+(-12)=-16
-6-8-6+(-8)=-14

From this list we can see that 2 and 24 add up to 26 and multiply to 48

Now looking at the expression , replace with (notice adds up to . So it is equivalent to )

Now let's factor by grouping:

Group like terms

Factor out the GCF of out of the first group. Factor out the GCF of out of the second group

Since we have a common term of , we can combine like terms

So factors to

So this also means that factors to (since is equivalent to )

(-1)*(20)
(-2)*(10)
(-4)*(5)

note: remember, the product of a negative and a positive number is a negative number

Now which of these pairs add to 1? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to 1

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-201+(-20)=-19
2-102+(-10)=-8
4-54+(-5)=-1
-120-1+20=19
-210-2+10=8
-45-4+5=1

From this list we can see that -4 and 5 add up to 1 and multiply to -20

Now looking at the expression , replace with (notice adds up to . So it is equivalent to )

Now let's factor by grouping:

Group like terms

Factor out the GCF of out of the first group. Factor out the GCF of out of the second group

Since we have a common term of , we can combine like terms

So factors to

So this also means that factors to (since is equivalent to )

So our expression goes from and factors further to

Looking at the expression , we can see that the first coefficient is , the second coefficient is , and the last term is .

Now multiply the first coefficient by the last term to get .

Now the question is: what two whole numbers multiply to (the previous product) and add to the second coefficient ?

To find these two numbers, we need to list all of the factors of (the previous product).

Factors of :
1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30
-1,-2,-3,-5,-6,-10,-15,-30

Note: list the negative of each factor. This will allow us to find all possible combinations.

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*(-30)
2*(-15)
3*(-10)
5*(-6)
(-1)*(30)
(-2)*(15)
(-3)*(10)
(-5)*(6)

Now let's add up each pair of factors to see if one pair adds to the middle coefficient :

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-301+(-30)=-29
2-152+(-15)=-13
3-103+(-10)=-7
5-65+(-6)=-1
-130-1+30=29
-215-2+15=13
-310-3+10=7
-56-5+6=1

From the table, we can see that the two numbers and add to (the middle coefficient).

So the two numbers and both multiply to and add to

Now replace the middle term with . Remember, and add to . So this shows us that .

Replace the second term with .

Group the terms into two pairs.

Factor out the GCF from the first group.

Factor out from the second group. The goal of this step is to make the terms in the second parenthesis equal to the terms in the first parenthesis.

Combine like terms. Or factor out the common term

---------------------------------------------

So factors to .

Note: you can check the answer by FOILing to get or by graphing the original expression and the answer (the two graphs should be identical).

I'm assuming that the first function is

If , then and .

If , then and .

If , then and .

If , then and .

So we have this table of values

xf(x)g(x)
010
131
292
3273

From the table, we can see that increments by 1 as x increments by 1. On the other hand, we can see that goes from 1 to 3 (a difference of 2), 3 to 9 (a difference of 6), 9 to 27 (a difference of 18), etc. So the differences between each term is: 2, 6, 18, etc....

This means that from x=0 to x=1, the average rate of change for g(x) is 2. From x=1 to x=2, the average rate of change for g(x) is 6. From x=2 to x=3, the average rate of change for f(x) is 18.

-------------------

So dividing the first average rate of change 2 by 1, we get . So from x=0 to x=1, is growing twice as fast as .

Dividing the second average rate of change 6 by 1, we get . So from x=1 to x=2, is growing six times as fast as .

Dividing the third average rate of change 18 by 1, we get . So from x=2 to x=3, is growing eighteen times as fast as .

As you can see, the exponential function is not growing at a constant rate. So cannot be growing 3 times faster than

Note: the function does however grow three times faster than , but that is for another problem.

So that means that the statement is false.
