    Problems creating linear table

    I'm attempting to create a table with these values y=3x,y=3x^2, and y=3^x
    With values of X from 0to5. Below, i have an example of what I'm trying to achieve, though with these functions. Hopefully, someone can help me understand the difference in values with these functions.
    Any help is appreciated





    Y=2x

    X Y First difference
    0 0
    1 2 2-0=2
    2 4 4-2=2
    3 6 6-4=2
    4 8 10-8=2
    5 10 12-8=2
    6 12 12-10=2

    Re: Problems creating linear table

    I guess i don't understand how to translate these variables into a sequence of numbers. y=3x^2 i assume follows into a pattern of a difference of 9. The other variables i don't follow.

    This is grade 12 math. I may wish to return to college.
