## Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

so sound a= x

sound b is 1000 times sound a so sound b = 1000x

the decibel level of the louder sound is 1000 times the quieter one

f(x)=1000x

where x is the intensity of the quieter one and f(x) is the intensity of the louder one
