linear and decreasing
Graph a line with the formula
, where m is negative.
Sketch a line on a graph that goes down as it goes right.
An example of a decreasing linear graph is shown with the equation
non-linear and increasing
Graph a relationship where either
or has an exponent greater than .
An equation in which
or has an exponent greater than one will create a curve, rather than a line.
An example of an increasing, non-linear graph is shown with the curve with the equation
