Sketch an example of each type of graph described below.

  1. 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

    A decreasing line, going through the points (0, comma 3), and (6, comma 0).

  1. 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 .

    An increasing curve, where the curve approaches the x axis for very small values of x.
