similarties:

1. both pass through the origin

2. both have the same domain and range (ℝ)

3. both have start from quadrant 3 and finish in quadrant 1.

4. Both do not have local maximum or minimum.

differnce

1. the shapes are different, y=x is a straight line, the power functions are curves.

2. The power functions have one point of inflection, at the origin, the straight line has none.

3. The power functions are concave downwards for x<0, and concave upwards for x>0.
