# What does it mean by exponential?

Relating to a mathematical expression containing one or more exponents. ♦ Something is said to increase or decrease exponentially if its rate of change must be expressed using exponents. A graph of such a rate would appear not as a straight line, but as a curve that continually becomes steeper or shallower.

Similarly, you may ask, what is an exponential graph?

Graphs of Exponential Functions. The graph of y=2x is shown to the right. Here are some properties of the exponential function when the base is greater than 1. The graph passes through the point (0,1) The domain is all real numbers.

What does it mean to have an exponential relationship?

Exponential relationships are relationships where one of the variables is an exponent. So instead of it being '2 multiplied by x', an exponential relationship might have '2 raised to the power x': Usually the first thing people do to get a grasp on what exponential relationships are like is draw a graph.

What does it mean when a graph is exponential?

Notice on the graph that, as the value of x increases, the value of f(x) also increases. This means that the function is an increasing function. The inverse of an exponential function is a logarithmic function and the inverse of a logarithmic function is an exponential function.
