## Were going to do this section entirely on the calculator. We will

be doing an exponential regression and a power regression (the
same thing we did for lines, quadratics, cubics, and quartics).
Exponential Function:
Power Function:

y = ab x

y = ax

## Write an exponential function that passes through the points (1,

12) and (3, 108).

## The deer population is increasing exponentially each month. The

chart shows the number of deer y for each month x (1 = January).

## Hunting season begins when the deer population

reaches 200. What month will hunting season
begin?

Write a power function that passes through the points (3, 2) and
(6, 9).

The table below shows the atomic number x and the melting point
y (in degrees Celsius) for the alkali metals. Find a power model for
the data.

## Estimate the melting point of Francium

(atomic number 87), the next alkali metal.
