I saw this on a test, but can't remember what it was referring to. I've been on Khan Academy and can't find an explanation. $f(x)=5^{x1}$ I chose $f(0)$ Last edited by skipjack; June 21st, 2017 at 06:33 AM.

You're not giving much to go on here ... fyi, $f(0)=\dfrac{1}{5}$

Was it a Khan Academy test?

No, it was an accuplacer. It's taken me a little while to realize it, but the whole test is covering algebra II which I have never taken. The practice tests are in no way representative of what is on the actual tests. But I'm 3 points away from getting into the class I need, so I'm studying as much as I can. Why does $f(0)=\dfrac{1}{5}$ ?

I get it $5^{1}=\dfrac{1}{5}$ Didn't even see the setup.

I don't understand why Opposite "chose f(0)"! What was the question?
