1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
suppose that g is a function defined and continuous on (2,2) and that g" exists on the open interval (2,2). if g(2)=1 and g">4 for all x in (2,2), how large can g(1) possibly be? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution

Same thing but I would have said "n^{n} is NOT an "exponential" function."

What about g(x)=14^{n}+(x+6)^{n} for n greater or equal to 3?
