Can you tell which function has the higher rate of growth? How?
A)
There is not enough information to make a conclusion.
B)
The linear function is growing faster, because at x = 3 the y-value of the
linear function is larger.
C)
The exponential function is growing faster, because at x = 0 the y-value of
the exponential function is larger.
D)
The exponential function is growing faster, because it grows by a factor
that is multiplied by the previous y-value instead of being added like the
linear function.

The answer is option D) The exponential function is growing faster, because it grows by a factor that is multiplied by the previous y-value instead of being added like the linear function.

Step-by-step explanation:

We can easily that by evaluating both functions at x = 10

Linear

f(x) = 7*10 = 70

Exponential

f(x) = 2^(10) = 1024
