URGENT: Basic graphing question I have the equation y=1.234x^(-0.567). First part of the question was the plot a graph for it from points 0.01, 0.1, 1, 10, 100... 10000. I got that part (on excel) It's an exponential graph. Second part says, and here's where I am confused, plot Y=y and X=x^(-0.567) from the same x values. My understanding is that the Y values will stay the same, and the X values will be different based on the new X formula. The question asks whether the graph will be a straight line. I said no based on excel and intuition because X is still changing exponentially. However, the next question says the following: "This problem shows two main methods that are widely used to manipulate a mathematical formula (model) to convert and then analyze it in the standard form of a straight line". How does that method convert it to straight line? It's still an exponential relation, isn't it? Another classmate of mine got a straight, but I dont know how. How do you convert an exponential graph into a linear graph without using logs with just algebra? Please help!
