Sort of combining the two solutions already given

  Hide contents

f(x) = C 3log2x

where C is any constant

 

f(2x) = C 3log2(2x) = C 31+log2x = C (3 3log2x) = 3f(x)

 

Spoiler

I suspect the issue with this solution is that f(x) is not defined for all x, and therefore not continuous for all x.

f(x) = 3log2(|x|)almost works, but still has a discontinuity at x = 0.

Spoiler

I'm not too sure if this is right, but I got two possible solutions:

y=3^(log(x)/log(2))

            and

y=-3^(log(-x)/log(2))

I got these two solutions by trying to make an equation where the y-value triples only when the x-value doubles, and not after each x-value.
