Graph drawing question

  1. Aug 9, 2012 #1
    The graph e^x = x^2:

    I originally drew it like this:

    But it's actually:

    If I come across more complex graphs in the future, is there a way to know which one is steeper than the other, to draw it accurately ?

    You could plot some actual points of interest to see where the plots are...

    A good plotting tool exists at fooplot.com -- by the way, "The graph e^x = x^2:" makes little sense.

    Yes, they're called derivatives, but you study those in calculus and since you posted this in precalculus I'll leave it at that.
