Immediately looking at the different plots for the three different equations: y = px (1) y = e x (2) y = x p (3) similarities and differences are immediately visible. The biggest mystery is which function grows the fastest. The immediate assumption is the natural equation, which is equation 2. With the given range of x [1,10], this function has exponential growth; however, equation 3 shows exponential growth also. The main difference is equation 2 approaches infinity while equation 3 seems to approach a limit, and it is not growing at a faster rate than equation 2. Both equation 1 and 3 have the constant P. A larger P value for equation 3 will yield faster growth than that of equation 2.

Unformatted text preview: Based off of this assumption, it can be said that equation 3 grows faster with the constant variable as a factor of just how fast it grows. All three functions yield straight lines when taking the log of the y values while keeping the x values linear, plots b, e, and h. The slope represents the growth. Plot e represents decay because the change in slope is decreasing as x increases because the value for P used in this case is less than 1. The slope of the function is plot e shows growth because the natural number, e, grows exponential for values greater than 1.
