modeling exponential growth

posted by .

hey. the directions say identify the initial amount "a" and the growth factor "b" in each exponential function. i've looked at the examples given and i still don't understand. the first problem is
g(x)=20x2^x
or g(x) equals twenty times two to the "x" power....
