Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14An exponential function is very similar to a geometric series, but you can plug in noninteger inputs into an exponential function (whereas you cannot with a geometric series)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14Example of an exponential function: f(x) = 2^x Example of a geometric sequence: a[n] = 2^n In the first, you can plug in ANY real number. In the second, you can only plug in positive integers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14So the first is continuous, and the second is discrete.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A Geometric function has variable number of terms, based on the argument. It also has a discrete graph. It may follow an exponential curve. An Exponential function is a function of a constant number of exponential terms. It is a continuous curve; the exponents are from the set of real numbers
