1 Comparing Exponential and Linear Functions Lesson 3.2

2 Table of Values Use the data matrix of your calculator to enter the following values.  Column 1 is the x values  Columns 2 and 3 are the f(x) and g(x) x f(x) g(x)

3 Table of Values Click APPS then 6, then Current (F1, 8 to clear if needed) Enter values as shown below

4 Two Different Functions Note the succession of values for f(x)  Differ by 6 each  This implies linear

5 Two Different Functions Note the succession of values for g(x)  They do NOT differ by a constant  However, the successive values have the same ratio  Show by placing formula in column 4 Cursor must be here Note ratio is 1.3 This shows it is an exponential function.

6 How to Determine the Formula From previous lesson we know that Where b is the growth factor  In our case the common ratio = 1.3 Solve for a  Substitute b = 1.3, any ordered pair

7 Determine Function from Two Points We can create two equations with two unknowns Solve for one of the variables Substitute into the other equation (-1, 2.5) (1, 1.6) Answer b=0.8 a=2

8 Compare and Contrast Linear y = m*x + b y = m+m+ … m+ b x terms Exponential y = a * b x y = a * b * b * … * b x factors

9 Compare and Contrast Exponential growth will always outpace linear growth  In the long run  Eventually Question: Where?  Solve graphically or algebraically or observe table

10 Where Exponential Passes Linear Given y = 100 (1.02) x y = x Algebraically : no current tools to solve 100 (1.02) x = x Graphically : ask calculator to find intersection Or observe tables
