the exponential function g(t)=500(1-3-t) describes how long it takes for catfish to migrate from a pond. what is the meaning of g(0) ? what are the restraints on the types of numbers used for g(t)/

hi, g(t)=500(1-3-t) is not an exponential function, revise the question and I will help you! thanks

ok sorry g(t) = 500 (1-3negative t) I don't know how to do a negative exponent on here but that's what it is?

you can use "^" as the exponent symbol

thank you

ok, so is it g(t)=500(1-3^(-t))???

yes

describes how long it takes for catfish to migrate from a pond.

this question is too vague to answer, there should be additional information related to it. The answer can be t if you have to write one.

what is the meaning of g(0) ?

g(0) is the initial position of the catfish, plug in 0 for g(t)=500(1-3^(-t)), we get 0.

what are the restraints on the types of numbers used for g(t)

t is the time, so t has to be greater than or equal to 0.

Let me know if you have any questions
