State whether each equation in Exercises 25–30 represents a linear,
quadratic, or exponential function. Tell how you decided.
*I believe this equation is a exponential function but, I'm not sure how to explain it.*
The determinant factor is the exponent.
If the variable is in the exponent, then it is exponential. For example,
If the maximum value of the exponent is two, then the expression/equation is quadratic. For example:
If the maximum of the exponent is 1, or if exponents are absent (i.e. =1), it is linear. For example,
