  1. A homework dump? Booo! Still, I'll try to get you started on these, just 'cause I'm feeling generous right now.

    #1. as x grows by 2, 3*5^x grows by a factor of 5^2
    #3. 24 = 8*3, so it triples 3 times, right?
    #4. initial value is when x=0. 2^0 = 1...
    #5. just plug in t=100
    #6. f(x-h) shifts the graph to the right by h
    #7. none of the above. That pesky +4 messes up the ratios
    #8. well, you keep multiplying by 3 for each successive term. What does this whole set of exercises deal with?
    #10. (1/3)^x gets smaller and smaller, since you keep multiplying by a number less than 1. It is like the left side of the graph of 3^x
    #11. 4x^0 y^-2 z^3/4x = (4*1*z^3)/(y^2*4x) = ...
    #12,13. no idea -- no graph
    #14. well, you keep multiplying by 1/2, right?
