- 2^x
- 3^x
- x^20
2. Compare the rates of growth of f(x) = x + sinx and g(x) = x as x approaches infinity.
- f(x) grows faster than g(x) as x goes to infinity.
- g(x) grows faster than f(x) as x goes to infinity. (my answer)
- f(x) and g(x) grow at the same rate as x goes to infinity.
- The rate of growth cannot be determined.

1. #1. 3>e, so 3^x grows faster than e^x
#2. I don't like any of the choices. How does 1 relate to 1+cosx?
#3. Since the limit f/g = limit f'/g', f grows faster
#4 assuming you meant 3^x rather than 3x, then you want D.
#5 ?? A and B are the same.
