The graph shows the functions f(x), p(x), and g(x):
Graph of function g of x is y is equal to 1 plus the quantity 1.5 raised to the power of x. The straight line f of x joins ordered pairs negative 5, 3 and negative 3, negative 1 and is extended on both sides. The straight line p of x joins the ordered pairs 0, 2 and negative 2, negative 3 and is extended on both sides.
