    Linear/quadratic/exponential identification help?

    So I have three tables and I have to tell which are either linear, quadratic, or exponential, then explain why. If someone could do this (i know I sound lazy and I could probably do this myself, but I'm too busy and this really needs to get done.)

    The first table.
    The x values are: -2,-1,0,1,2.
    The y values are: 8,5,4,5,8

    The second table.
    The x values are: -2,-1,0-1-2
    The y values are: -16,-3,0,-1,0

    The third table.
    The x values are: -2,-1,0,1,2
    The y values are:1,.3,.09,.027,.0081

    I'm busy as well. And I have heaps of work that needs to be done.

    My advice is plot the points and all will be revealed.
