This is a general question... when given 2 functions (or more) how can you plug in numbers to determine which function is bigger? Let's say x^2 and x^3....if I plug in 2, x^3 would seem to be the bigger function, but when I graph it, x^2 is the bigger function, no?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
