i need math help! fast! please!

how do you convert y= 50 times (1/(5e^(-.202x)))
(e being 2.718281828)

to y=AB^x form?

thank you sooo much!

Easy, A = 50; B = (1/5)*e^(0.202*x)

What you need to do there is just use the minus on the -0.202*x to move it up.

I don't know if that's the answer you needed. You can't work any further with this if you want the result with Y = something.

Let me know if I'm right or I'll look more into it.

EDIT: 1/5 * 50 = 10; Therefore A = 10 ^ B = e^(0.202*x)
