Exponential Functions**If we plot f (x) and f `(x) for f (x) = 2x: If we plot f (x) and f `(x) for f (x) = 3x: f (x) f `(x) f `(x) f (x) (0,1) (0,1) We can see that f `(x) is below f (x). We can see that f `(x) is above f (x). For some value between 2 and 3, f (x) = f `(x).**If we plot f (x) and f `(x) for f (x) = 2.7x:**If we plot f (x) and f `(x) for f (x) = 2.8x: f (x) f `(x) f `(x) f (x) (0,1) (0,1) We can see that f `(x) is justbelow f (x). We can see that f `(x) is justabove f (x).**From these graphs we can see that:**• If f(x) is an exponential function then f `(x) is also an exponential function • f `(x) = k f (x) • A value exists between 2.7 and 2.8 for which f ` (x) = f (x) f (x) = f `(x) = ex This value is: 2.718…..
