It appears to me that you are doing just fine. Perhaps you do not understand the question. Please provide information concerning why you are doing this.
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
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.
