In this course you have dealth with both linear and quadratic relations. Describe how the two relatiions would differ based on
a) the table of values
b) The graphs
c) The general equation
(a) look at a linear table of values and a quadratic table of values. What difference do you notice in the y values?
(b) What's the difference between this: $\displaystyle \cup$ and this: $\displaystyle \bold{/}$
(c) The general equation of a linear graph is $\displaystyle y=ax+b$ and for a quadratic graph it's $\displaystyle y=ax^2+bx+c$. Notice any dissimilarities?
