9. An exponential function with a base of 3 has been compressed
horizontally by a factor of 1/2, reflected in the x-axis, and shifted
vertically and horizontally. The graph of the obtained function passes
through the point (1, 1) and has the horizontal asymptote y = 2.
Determine the equation of the obtained function. [T 4]
