Here is an example of how to determine if a graph is exponential growth or decay. Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. Both exponential growth and decay are functions- i.e. there graphs pass the vertical line test 2. Exponential function graphs slope upward…

## Linear And Non-Linear Functions Example 1

Here is an example of the graph of a non-linear function. Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. First identify what type of function you have- example, exponential, log, trig, linear, etc 2. If asked to graph the function sketch the basic graph with…

## Linear and Non-linear Functions

Linear functions, non-linear functions..who cares! Well if you like good grades in algebra then you want to take “care” on understanding the differences between various functions. Linear functions are lines and non-linear functions are other shapes like parabolas. As long as you have a basic idea of the different type…

## Exponential Growth and Decay

Exponential growth and decay is just a description on how something grows or decays overtime. Example, lets say you have two rabbits and they have babies and their babies have babies and so forth- it wont be long until you have a backyard full of rabbits- can you say Bugs…
