    linear is constant rate ie 3x 3 is your slope exponential growth rate is a faster growth rate example growth of bacteria that is why we should brush our teeth 3 times a day because the bacteria growths fast

    yes I would Linear is easy compare it to getting paid 10x is 10 dollars an hour 20x is 20 dollars an hour also, show the graphs (linear will always be straight lines, even diagonals) exponential has a specific graph they shoot upward if they are growing fast
