How do you tell if a equation is quadratic or exponential or linear when it is in a table?

I'm not sure how you managed to get your equation into a table form. So perhaps try multiply each pronumeral by an exponential of the index of the third pronumeral cow

How can you tell from an equation if it is Quadratic?

One of its terms will be squared and it will have two solutions.

What can the discriminant tell you about a quadratic equation?

It can tell you three things about the quadratic equation:- 1. That the equation has 2 equal roots when the discriminant is equal to zero. 2. That the equation has 2 distinctive roots when the discriminant is greater than zero. £. That the equation has no real roots when the discriminant is less than zero.

How can the degree of the equation tell us if the equation is linear or not?

A linear equation always has a degree of one because the slope has to be constant to form a line. So, x + 7 is linear, 7 - x is linear, 4x - 3.7 is linear, but anything with x2 , etc. is not linear.

How can you tell a linear function from an equation?

An equation is a statement that two things are equal. A function is a rule or process that gives you a value if you give it something in its domain (the set of things on which it is defined) as an argument. Functions on numbers that are defined by a rule can usually be expressed by an equation. A linear function is one that can be defined by a linear equation.

How can you tell that an equation has the same solution as the original equation?

If the two equations are linear transformations of one another they have the same solution.

How do you tell if an eqution is a linear equation?

An equation (note spelling) is linear if it is made up exclusively of constants and of unknowns raised to the first power (e.g., 'z', as opposed to 'z^2')

How can you tell how many solutions a quadratic equation will have without solving it?

A quadratic equation can have a maximum of 2 solutions. If the discriminant (b2-4ac) turns out to be less than 0, the equation will have no real roots. If the Discriminant is equal to 0, it will have equal roots. But, if the discriminant turns out to be more than 0,then the equation will have unequal and real roots.
