See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Given information

Given graph ## Step 2: Checking the graph and forming the function

The graph is a reflection about the $y$-axis of $y={3}^{x}$. Thus, an equation would be $y={3}^{-x}$

The function $y={3}^{-x}$, being a reflection about the $y$-axis of $y={3}^{x}$, contains the points $\left(-1,3\right),\left(0,1\right)$, and $\left(1,\frac{1}{3}\right)$

The graph contains the points $\left(0,3\right),\left(1,1\right)$, and $\left(2,\frac{1}{3}\right)$. When compared to the three points mentioned above, these points involve one -unit shift to the right.

Thus, the equation of the graph must be $y={3}^{-\left(x-1\right)}$

So it matches to (g) ### Want to see more solutions like these?
