If f(x) = 6, then 100 - 2^x = 6
Rearrange to get: 2^x = 94

Observe:
2^6 = 64
2^7 = 128

Since 94 is BETWEEN 64 and 128, we can conclude that x is BETWEEN 6 and 7

Only answer choice B meets the criteria that x is BETWEEN 6 and 7

Answer: B

Cheers,
Brent

We are given that f(x) = 100 - 2^x and that f(x) = 6. Thus:

6 = 100 - 2^x

2^x = 94

We are looking for a number such that 2 raised to that number is equal to 94. We know that 2^6 = 64 and 2^7 = 128. Therefore, even though we can’t determine the exact value of x (unless we have a calculator), we know that 6 < x < 7. Since 6 < x < 7, the correct answer choice is B: 4 < x ≤ 8.

Answer: B
