Your question is a bit like asking : "Why is 2 times 2 more than twice as large as 1 times 1.Why is it that in a formula: f(x)=2x^4.....), why is it that the exponent actually BENDS the line that the fomula makes when it is graphed? I know about the high and low point in algebra two (that's what i'm taking), but i just want to know WHY does an exponent BEND the line?
