Q:

URGENT!!!! FIRST ANSWER GETS BRAINLIEST!!!!!The graph shows the parent function f(x)=2(0.5)x. (first picture)Which graph represents the function g(x)=2(0.5)x−1?A. Second PictureB. Third PictureC. Fourth PictureD. Fifth Picture

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The 4th picture will be the correct one. Step-by-step explanation:The first picture shows the graph of f(x) and in the options there are pictures of graph of g(x) = f(x) -1 So, it is clear from the equation of the functions that the graph of f(x) and g(x) will be similar but the the y value in g(x) will be 1 less than the y value in f(x) corresponding to a certain x value. So, the graph will translate down by 1 unit. Therefore, the 4th picture will be the correct one.
