(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Ok, so I have an unknown exponential function:

y_{1}= f_{1}(t)

By measuring the values oftandy, a linear connection is generated between Y_{i}_{i}(=log (y)) and t:_{i}

Y=_{i}A._{i}t + B_{i}

A_{1}= -2.12

B_{1}= 1.96

Problem 1: Describefin the following matter:_{1}

y_{1}= f_{1}(t) = Ce^{λt}

3. The attempt at a solution

I've been juggling with numbers and letters without ending up with anything reasonable.

Ok, let's ramble down some thoughts:

Adding log function to both sides of the functions gives

log(y_{1}) = log t + log -2.12 + log 1.96 = log (C) + log (e) λt

And this is where it all ends. Any help out there? Would be much appreciated!
