With the help of your classmates, solve the inequality ex > xn for a variety of natural numbers n. What might you conjecture about the “speed” at which f (x) = ex grows versus any polynomial? 9 We know this is true in general by Exercise 8 in Section 5.2, but it’s nice to see a speciﬁc example of the property. 6.3 Exponential Equations and Inequalities 6.3.2 367 Answers 1.
